Peak Season Fruit and Veggies by State

Since Wyatt has started eating solid foods, I would like to make some of his food. Home made baby food is theoretically easy, will definitely be healthier, and I have too much free time so no excuses.  The baby cookbooks recommend using the fruits and vegetables that are in their peak because this will help to make sure he is eating ripe and tasty food...as tasty as baby puree can be at least.  I found a web site that lists the fruit and vegetables by state and month.

For Florida, the following is listed in season for March:

Avocados, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cantaloupe, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Corn, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Grapefruit, Mushrooms, Okra, Onions, Oranges, Oysters, Eastern, Potatoes, Radishes, Spinach, Squash, Strawberries, Tomatoes

For Texas, the following is listed in season for March:

Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Grapefruit, Mushrooms, Onions, Oranges, Oysters, Eastern, Spinach, Strawberries, Sweet Potatoes, Tomatoes

Does anybody know what eastern is?  I am too lazy to google.

Speaking of fruits and veggies, this is what I had for lunch yesterday after Wyatt's Dr appt (pardon the blurry pic).

This is a burger patty topped with sliced bratwurst, grilled onions and peppers, in a pretzel bun with homemade chips. Tasty, yeah! Healthy, nah!

Tonight, I attempt to make corned beef.  Tomorrow, I attempt to make cabbage soup with corned beef.  Happy early St. Patty's Day.
