Summer vegetables…sweet spot

May 25, 2009

This is sort of the sweet spot in the summer vegetable garden in our climate. Warm enough that summer vegetables likes cucumbers, squash, zucchini, corn and beans are coming on, as well as the first tomatoes, but not yet hot enough to melt everything down into scortched earth, as will be the case soon enough. I'm beginning to be rewarded with more squash and zucchini than I will be able to consume fast enough, but I'll happily try. It's also the time of year where the last of the cool season crops, such as broccoli, chard and the last of the lettuce greens, overlap into summer.
