Farm fresh and family friendly :: in season


For the past few months, I’ve discussed zucchini, eggplant, berries, and other seasonal fruits and veggies. With summer–the most abundant of seasons–soon folding into autumn, I invite you to stay true to the season.

Your initial reaction may be, “Sure, no problem. There’s so much to choose from at the Farmers’ Market. It’s so easy, however, to get caught up in convenience, efficiency, and mindlessness. With school starting, soccer leagues in full swing, and the sense of busyness that often comes during times of transition, I encourage you to stay connected to what the earth is providing us right now. Fully enjoy peach juice running down your arm. Corn–crisp and sweet. Tomatoes, warmed by the sun.

There’s no time like the present. There’s no time like the current season.
