Local tomatoes, eggplant, and green peppers are going strong with the warm weather, but earlier maturing vegetables like squashes and cucumbers are all but over.

Apple supplies continue to wind down, and everyone’s looking forward to the new harvest.

Peaches are in a bit of a harvesting gap, and a little bit harder to find, but well worth the search.

California has begun their Bartlett pear season.  Bartletts are an awesome dessert pear, that ripens quickly, has a high sugar content, and cooks great.

Michigan and New Jersey have begun their vegetable season, and their fresh fields are producing really nice squash, cucumbers, beans and zucchini.

Idaho is winding up old crop spuds rapidly and unexpectedly.  The potatoes are having a birthday and have turned south and most left are unpackable.

Q: How hot was it last week?
