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 (Growing well in my garden after looking dead for 2 months)
  • Butter Beans
  • Cabbage
  • Cantaloupes
  • Chard
  • Cherries
  • Chilies
  • Collard Greens
  • Cucumbers (Growing in the garden for grammie)
  • Eggplant
  • Grapes
  • Green Beans
  • Greens
  • Green Onions
  • Kale
  • Melons
  • Wild Mushrooms
  • Nectarines
  • Okra
  • Peaches
  • Peas
  • Pea Pods
  • Sweet Peppers (Growing slowly in the garden)
  • Radishes
  • Scallions
  • Shelling Beans
  • Summer Squash (Most have died in our garden)
  • Tomatoes (Growing too well in our garden… there are 25 in the dehydrator this morning)
  • Watermelons
  • Zucchini (Most have died in our garden)

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 (Thyme, oregano, mint, chocolate mint, pineapple sage, rosemary, hot lips sage growing well in the garden)
  • Leeks
  • Lettuce
  • Onions
  • Potatoes
  • Shallots
  • Sorrel
  • Spinach
  • Sweet Potatoes
