Happy summer – it’s prime time for BBQ’s, bonfires, grilling, and more! We’ve been excited to share with you our summer produce list.
Some of the items on the list aren’t surprising – tomatoes and cucumbers are a summer garden staple. Other items are less obvious, like herbs such as basil and cilantro.
In the beginning of summer peaks apricots, arugula, avocados, blackberries, cilantro, dill, mangoes, peas, raspberries, and strawberries.
In mid-summer peaks basil, green beans, blueberries, cherries, eggplant, nectarines, peaches, yellow squash, watermelon, and zucchini.
Towards the end of summer we have bell peppers, bok choy, celery, chard, corn, cucumbers, figs, grapes, guavas, horseradish, melons, onions, plumbs, tomatoes, and tomatillos.
Print this guide and stick it to your fridge or bring it with you when grocery shopping.
