Hot summer

Yes, it’s been hot here in Michigan and across much of the country. And we complain about the heat.

But while at the Royal Oak Farmer’s Market Saturday, buying produce to eat right now and much more to can for later, it occurred to me that the beautiful cucumbers, tomatoes, berries, corn and other great food on display is there because it’s summer and it’s hot. It’s hard to grow tomatoes in cooler climates. Corn needs long hot days and nights.

Enjoy the great bounty of summer produce. And endure the heat that makes it all grow.
