Produce In Season

Lord, will we ever see the end of summer squash? I mean. I love summer squash as much as the next foodie - summer squash ragu, summer squash ratatouille,Ratatouille summer squash gratin, summer squash salad, summer squash soup, stuffed squash, zucchini bread, etc. But there comes a time when one's psyche and one's palette craves a change of pace - cooler weather, cool-weather crops and rain please.

Today my prayers are answered.

Rain in the forecast. Rainbow chard available from Johnson's Backyard Garden!

Here's what's in season and available this weekend: Kale, Onions, Cilantro, Swiss Chard, Baby Bok Choy, Mixed Peppers, Sweet Potatoes, Mixed Summer Squash, Salad Mix or Arugula.
