We saw garlic scapes everywhere last Saturday, along with berries, tomatoes, carrots, onions, greens, kohlrabi, eggplant, green beans, peas, asparagus, and strawberries. With the extreme heat this past week, the spring produce that was on it’s way out may not be there this Saturday; but the heat-loving summer produce should be plentiful. And don’t forget to pick up plenty of meats and other artisan goodies to celebrate Father’s Day this Sunday.

WHAT’S COOKING: Bangin’ Burgers
I recently watched a cooking show that inspired me to experiment, with the aim of making the ultimate burger. I really love a truly good burger, but can certainly live without ho-hum ones of which I’ve had plenty. After a bit of playing around, the results did not disappoint! Get the recipe.
