June Seasonal Produce Guide

Written by Becky

I have been so bad this year.  My garden is still not planted, weeds occupying the space where veggies should be, but sometimes mother nature pays us back even when its undeserved. Amidst the weeds, strawberries, a crop everyone should plant because of it’s ease of maintenance, are popping up everywhere.  We picked our first juicy red bite just the other day.  And herbs too… several herbs from past efforts came back with sprite this year.  So, though I’ve been busy, and sluggish in my efforts, I’m still reaping benefits of early summer crops. Alleluia!

Though I hope to eventually get some seeds or starters in the ground, I’ll be enjoying what we have until then and making rounds to our local market to fill in the holes for summer’s best bounty.  Here are some great recipes using this months seasonal produce list.  Stay tuned for more seasonal recipes next Monday around the web.  Search the hashtag #eatseasonal for even more!

  1. Just got some blueberries from the farmer’s market and they are absolute perfection! Are figs in season yet? I saw somewhere that they are but fig season confuses me…

  2. Hi Becky,

    Does this background come in a size larger than 1024×576? It’s too small for my desktop and I’m having trouble finding the larger version like what you’ve posted for past months.

    Thanks a bunch!,
    Ashley

  3. Just has the first arugula from our container garden tonight. After my lazy container gardening method of just tossing some seeds in a pot and hoping that good things come out of it. Excited to try some of the arugula recipes.
