What’s in Season? – August
August is here and summer is still going strong. There is still plenty of time to enjoy the warm days, the cold lemonade and that wonderful summer feeling. Holding onto summer is easy when you can enjoy some of the best foods of the year…that is if you know what they are.
Fruits and vegetables each have a prime time when they are at their seasonal best. Some, good for months at a time, other’s only have a small window of when they are at their best. August has so many prime-time fruits and vegetables, which will make your shopping (and your budget) a little bit easier.
