May - Whats in season?

So it's May already, the months seem to be flying by. The amount of seasonal vegetables available are rapidly increasing and the short lived asparagus season is well under way. I have also made a start on growing a small amount of my own vegetables and herbs which are starting to appear.

Sainsbury's Magazine May (& there 2009 recipe calendar).
