It’s a great time of year! There are so many vegetables that are ready fresh from the garden right now. Buying vegetables in the right season is a good idea. There are many local farmer’s markets which are brimming with summer vegetables. Buying from your local farmer’s market will help the local farmers and will assure that you are buying vegetables that are in season and fresh out of the garden.
Right now zucchinis and summer squash are plentiful. Cutting them into spears, drizzling with olive oil and parmesan cheese and grilling is a great way to enjoy these vegetables.
Tomatoes are also in season as well as green beans, cucumbers, lettuce and kale. There is no better way to eat healthy than salads incorporating all these vegetables. All kinds of peppers will soon be ready for harvest, such as bell peppers, jalapenos, habaneros, and chili to name a few. Sweet corn is also a great treat that is available now and who doesn’t love watermelon.
The next stage of vegetables will ripen more toward the end of summer. These include butternut squash, potatoes, gourds, and of course pumpkins.
Visiting your local farmer’s market will keep you well supplied with the vegetables and fruit of the summer as they become available. It’s also a great idea for gifts. A basket full of fresh fruit and vegetables is a great gift for a family member or friend or even a client.
