First Day of Summer!

Happy first day of summer, everyone!

I don’t know about the rest of the country, but Chicago has had the worst spring ever. Ever. It’s been rainy, dreary, and cold so I am hoping the first day of summer will be the mark of a significant change in the weather. By this time in June, my garden is typically sprouting small amounts of fruits and vegetables; however, this year our plants are barely bigger than when we bought them. I mean, is there anything that makes me happier than picking and eating tomatoes right off the vine? No. There is not.

Here is a list of my 10 favorite summer vegetables and fruits.

  1. Tomatoes
  2. Avocado
  3. Cucumber
  4. Peppers
  5. Blueberries
  6. Eggplant
  7. Zucchini
  8. Arugula
  9. Shallots
  10. Kale

Which of my top 10 summer foods are you eating and how are you enjoying them?
