August Seasonal Produce Guide

Written by Becky

Man oh man, harvest season is here in full swing!!  Though my garden is a bit sad this year (never got around to planting much since I was in school) the booths at the farmers market are bustling. I am almost overwhelmed at the amount of produce to choose from and I even get a little panic-y like I’m going to miss out on something if I don’t get it now.  Maybe I just need a cool cocktail to relax a little and just enjoy it all while it’s here… fresh tomatoes, bright colored carrots with all of their beautiful stems in tact, green beans so fresh you can hear them snap, and raspberries so juicy that I’ll still be thinking of their ripe flavor come mid winter.

You know the drill by now… today I’m sharing some past recipes using seasonal ingredients and on the 10th of August, bloggers around the web will be sharing new recipes featuring the ingredients above. Follow the hashtag #eatseasonal to get all of the latest greatest seasonal ideas.  Save the image at the top of this post as your computer screensaver to help you remember to eat what’s fresh.  Or use the image at the bottom of the post for your cell phone.  Enjoy!
