Eating local around the country
I am really interested in eating local as much as possible, mostly because of the environmental benefits. I found this map on Epicurious.com, a cooking website, that lists all in-season produce for each state, during each month. Clicking on Minnesota is a bit disheartening, as December through May is listed as the "dormant season." It's interesting to look at the growing season for other states, too, like Alaska or Hawaii.
