Summer Produce: Veggies and Fruit
Luckily there is an exhaustive list of fruits and vegetables that are primed for summer. Everyone is doing avocados these days. For fruit, explore apricot in the early summer. Focus on fig in mid-summer. And watermelon in late summer. For vegetables, we love fresh corn in the late summer and green beans, which are widely available throughout the summer. For something different, try zucchini blossoms.
