August! Really? How did that happen? This season closer is the true celebration of summer’s bounty—so many sunshine days make the produce and flower lists longer and longer. Gardens and farmers markets are bursting with melons, tomatoes, cucumbers, beans and my beloved stone fruit.
My favorite task of the month is tending to my dahlias and roses. They’re in quite the show-off phase, I’ve been indulging their diva behavior and snipping with total delight.
If you click on the map below, you’ll find an interactive version, giving you some facts about August showstoppers and hyperlinks to recipes for what’s in season now.
And this PDF below gives you a pretty printable version. Post it up as a reference on the fridge or take it with you to the grocery store or farmers market.
As we slide into the homestretch of summer, what’s showing off in your garden?
