A guide to growing

Found this guide on the back of a grocery bag. Interesting to see how they are trying to connect consumers with origin.   Are they trying to show green house grown farm product availability or home grower produce timelines?
Some quickly noticed exceptions:
Kale can be harvested during the time listed, but it is also a wonderful fall crop. You can continue to cut leaves into December.
Lettuce can be available earlier in the season.
Cilantro can grow earlier in Spring. 
Basil can be put in a pot and brought indoors, growning year round by continuing to take cuttings and rooting them in a glass of water.
So what is the intention of the grocery store?
