“Okra flower and okra” from Root to Leaf: A Southern Chef Cooks through the Seasons by Steven Satterfield.
August produces an abundance of fresh vegetables from the garden, at farmers markets, and on the menu at local eateries. Popular in our community this season are corn, tomatoes, okra, squash, cucumbers, eggplant, potatoes, peppers, green beans, melons, blueberries, peaches, figs—and the list goes on (and on).
Appreciate summer’s bounty through recipes, stories, and more.
