Howdy, August!

You’re coming in HAWT.

With 100 + degree temps and garden produce going gangbusters, it’s hard to even think that in the next few weeks kiddos will be going back-to-school. Honestly, it’s a bit much to wrap my head around because this will be Charlie’s first year of preschool!

Anyway, if you are feeling a bit of summer and produce paralysis, I feel ya! I say we stick with summer a bit longer and enjoy all of it’s fruits of labor. I put together a collection of yummy food to make this month. You’ll find the following produce in season:

  • Bell peppers
  • Beets
  • Blackberries
  • Cherries
  • Corn
  • Watermelon
  • Figs
  • Zucchini
  • Tomatoes
  • Mushrooms
