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.
