What’s in Season? August

Our homegrown watermelon isn't quite ready for prime time, so we're relying on store-bought melon to satisfy the 3-year-old's cravings.

My calendar says that it’s August, which comes as a complete shock since I’m still wondering where June went. July? Completely missing in action.

Betty grew up on a farm and always knew what was in season, fruits and vegetables that were plentiful and cheap. Being a child of the modern food chain where grapes are imported year-round, I have no idea what’s in season until I show up at the farmer’s market.

What should you look for this month? All of your favorite salad veggies, plus stone fruits, berries and watermelon for your picnic.
