Summer fruits are some of our favorites with their juicy, delicious flavors and their bright, beautiful colors. Whether we're dicing them up to complete a fresh, fruit salad, eating them fresh from the farm or baking them up into a cobbler, we can't resist their sweet, seasonal goodness.

We enjoy stocking up on fresh, local produce throughout the summer, and incorporating seasonal fruits and vegetables into our daily meals, family gatherings, barbeques, picnics and potlucks.
