Here’s the March Pick Now! Calendar. My apologies for the tardiness, but there is still plenty of time to enjoy the best offerings of the month. We’ve made it to spring! Even in a temperate climate like Santa Barbara we feel the change in season with the air smelling sweet and everything is blossoming.

My Pick Now! Calendar can help you get started on the season.

After months of broccoli and cauliflower it’s finally time to bite into strawberries, artichokes and fresh sweet peas. Don’t get me started on the flowers— bright bunches of daffodils, ranunculus and tulips are just beautiful. So, as you start planning out a fresh wardrobe update be sure to switch up your grocery list, too.

You can click anywhere on the March map above to view a full size version and click-thru to multiple recipes featuring what’s in season now across the country. Depending on where you live, you many not be able to find everything on the list, but there are great choices from coast to coast.

See the link below for a pretty printable version, you can put it up as a reference on the fridge or take it with you to the grocery store or farmers market.

One thought on “March: Pick Now!”

So, very jealous of the plants you can pick, we still have lots of snow and cold. But, signs of Spring, sandhill cranes and geese. The cardinals are singing.No robins yet, but we need grass for them. Found asparagus at the Amish store and avocadoes are cheap now, so I bought lots to freeze, works well with lemon juice.
