'Tis Now the Youth of Your Summer
In living and eating by the seasons we appreciate the wealth and gifts of every month, but there’s no denying that July is extra-abundant in the northern hemisphere. Long days with plenty of sunlight inspire us to be outside more, and warm temperatures encourage relaxation and enjoyment of outdoor meals with friends and family. The bounty of fruits and vegetables in our gardens and on local farms make it easy to eat local foods, create new recipes, and share food with others.

Enjoy your bountiful harvest this month. And remember to take a break once in awhile to simply enjoy your day as it is in the seasonal cycle. Have a wonderful month and please comment if you have any ideas for July menus.
