What’s local to me in August?

Mission: Rome 2011

What is local by you right now?

I had no idea, so I asked the internet what is local to my state and what should be freshest this month.

  • Basil
  • Butter Beans
  • Cabbage
  • Cantaloupes
  • Chard
  • Cherries
  • Chilies
  • Collard Greens
  • Cucumbers
  • Eggplant
  • Grapes
  • Green Beans
  • Greens
  • Green Onions
  • Kale
  • Melons
  • Wild Mushrooms
  • Nectarines
  • Okra
  • Peaches
  • Peas
  • Pea Pods
  • Sweet Peppers
  • Radishes
  • Scallions
  • Shelling Beans
  • Summer Squash
  • tomatoes
  • Watermelons
  • Zucchini

We do have quite a bit that are year-round foods. My assumption is that this is due to storage of root vegetables/pods and greenhouses.

  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Garlic
  • Herbs
  • Leeks
  • Lettuce
  • Onions
  • Potatoes
  • Shallots
  • Sorrel
  • Spinach (We like to buy it frozen as we use it mostly in smoothies or soups)
  • Sweet Potatoes

Oddly enough I know what everything is this month and I am very excited for more of a variety!

What are your produce plans this month?
