Early Summer:
After everyone has planted their gardens and flowering pots, it is time to think of all the fresh fruits and veggies. Time to start harvesting and eating all of nature's goodness. One of the most favorite and first fruits is STRAWBERRIES! Strawberries come into season mid to late June. Whether its your favorite fruit or not, who can pass up fresh strawberry shortcake, making jam, or just popping one in your mouth straight up. Its a true sign that summer has begun.

Fall:
As the days become shorter, we all need something to brighten our days and even nights. The leaves have begun to change and so has the availability of vegetables. We now must think of more robust, filling vegetables to eat. The tomatoes, corn, and lettuce may be gone, but there is still so much to be had. Winter squashes are abounding in variety. The apples not only warm up our stomachs but the home with their fragrance while cooking. Brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower are wonderful additions to any meal. Potatoes are an old stand by but really do warm your bones. Indian corn and pumpkins help to decorate or warm with outdoors for us. Harvest time is here for us and we would love for you to enjoy what we have to offer.
