from my perch the bottom line is that 'seasonality' really quite depends on where you live...pure and simple.

on California's 'central' coast where I have been most fortunate to live and work this winter, the coastal farms here are prolific....artichokes, the largest brussels sprouts you've ever seen, and on stalks, chards or all sorts, broccoli, cauliflower, baby carrots...the list goes on. In nearby Watsonville there are berry farms as far as the eye can see...strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries...soon to be ollieberries, lingonberries, and kiwi. I see figs and cherries at roadside stands as well. The more fragile baby greens, spinach, arugulas, micro greens and sprouts are in greenhouses.....and that is just this small micro cosm of the state.....who knows what's being grown south and central of here..i suspect everything that can be....one thing I do know from my short time here is that some where in this beautiful fertile state, some one is growing some thing All the time!!!!!

...grow it and they will come!!!!!

ps....yes to peas and pearl onions.....with some fresh mint or fresh thyme.....mmmmm.......who needs the cream sauce!
