Our World – The Taste of Summer

Dotsons Greenhouse View DSCN9580-1-Edit

I am not a vegetarian by any means but in the summertime I love fresh produce and fruit. The Tulsa suburb of Bixby used to be known for their truck farms and fresh produce. Will guess what the the flat lands with rich soil that make it suitable for farming is also loved by developers for building thousands of houses in nice subdivisions. So the truck and grass farms are rapidly disappearing but some of the produce places live on supplied from areas further away or even Texas, Arkansas, and Georgia.

From left to right, fresh green beans, new potatoes, corn on the cob and okra.

Luckily I’m married to a woman who knows what to do with fresh produce. We eat well all sorts of produce all summer long. Green beans and new potatoes, watermelon, cantaloupe, orkra, corn on the cob (and chowder), various peppers, marinated cucumbers and onion, and zucchini. Sign me up!! Not to mention peaches, plums, blue berries, blackberries, cherries and other fruit.

How about you? Do you have access to fresh fruit and vegetables? Do you like them?

    Porter peaches are legendary. There was a time when Weleetka Black Diamond watermelons were considered the best in the state. We have several farmers markets in our area but I think much of the produce is not truly local. Like you I am fortunate to have a wife that knows exactly what to do with a garden’s bounty.

    Oh, wow, those peaches look juicy and delicious. Haha … we could all use someone who knows what to do with fresh produce besides eat it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    All that fresh produce looks really good. I am jealous. Any farmers market are not located nearby. I miss farm fresh.

    Such pretty colorful food photos! Iโ€™m really looking forward to going to our Farmers Markets again now that weโ€™re home. We used to plan our dinners around the meat, now it is the opposite! Veggies rule.
