Savoring August

Isn't August just the best month to eat!?! There are so many fresh and locally grown fruits and vegetables. I'm still picking peas from my garden and beets and summer squash and zucchini, and the new potatoes are ready. Then there are the melons. I hardly ever buy a watermelon before August, an August melon is worth the wait. And peaches in August the yellow kind that are sweet and juicy, not the pretty red peaches of July that look nice in a still life. Growing up the kettle was heating on the stove as we brought sweet corn in from the field and we didn't waste a minute. Savoring the sweetness of August. --Ann--
