Food and Garden Dailies started as a way to record my family's favorite recipes. It has come in handy many times when I'm asked for a recipe. I simply email a link to the blog! But I couldn't just stick to recipes. The kitchen is tied to the garden in so many ways...and so I let you into my ever changing garden as well.

The Oregon WIC program also has a PDF document listing harvest times. Their times are similar, but not exact to the ones listed above.

And, yet another schedule can be found on Oregon Fresh's website: Fruit & Nuts and Vegetables.

Looking at a couple schedules should give you a good idea of when crops are usually available.

What if you're wanting to plant these crops in your own garden? Oregon State University's Extension service has a great monthly garden calendar that includes a planting schedule. It's a great resource for what to do and when to do it!
