August Food and Recipe Basket


August Food and Recipe Basket -2023 at Miz Helen's Country Cottage

What's In Season and How Do I Use It?

August in Texas is hot and sometimes dry. Often times our gardens really suffer from the heat, but there are some vegetables that continue to produce during this time. This year we have experienced very high temperatures in the 3 digits for over a month. The gardens are not doing very well, but the farmers markets are packed out with wonderful selections of fruits and vegetables. We are still getting some of the all time summer producers, like tomatoes, cucumbers, and melons. We do have some great vegetables that are in season for the month of August.
The Vegetables In Our Basket This Month

I am so happy that you could stop by and look at all the seasonal items in our August Food and Recipe Basket. I am looking forward to this month it looks like we will have some delicious food to choose from. Hope you enjoy your garden harvest and all the wonderful produce that you pick up at your farmers market. Have a fantastic week and come back to see us real soon!
Peace and Joy
