The summer is passing. We’ve gobbled all the strawberries, cherries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries we can handle. Our freezers are now bursting with bags of lovely berries to see us through winter. We’re making our last visits for succulent peaches, nectarines and plums, and it won’t be long before we hear the call for apples and ciders, and pears. But wait, Oregon grows amazing local vegetables too. NOW is the time! Bring on the parade of beans, tomatoes, corn squash, peppers, cukes, garlics and so much more! And the height of summer is no time for the kids to get bored either! While some farms scale back special events for the hottest days of summer, others are just getting started. How about an evening date for mom and dad?Now is the time for beautiful field dinners to relax, eat from a fabulous home-grown spread and enjoy the joys of harvest season.
