July in Utah makes me think of wild flowers up Little Cottonwood Canyon, camping, mojitos on the back patio, and Saturdays at the Farmer’s Market. This mid summer month brings us bright blue blueberries, sweet corn, lots of fresh herbs (especially mint and parsley), beets, broccoli, juicy cherries, crisp cucumbers, garlic, green onions, a wide variety of lettuce, mint, new potatoes, peas, rhubarb, and strawberries.
To download this month’s wall paper on your computer, please see the first post on Seasonal Produce in Utah.
