Is There A Food You Didn't Get Enough Of This Summer?

I work so much, I COMPLETELY forgot to go by the Farmer's Market so close to my work (in the opposite direction, I might add), and get yummy tomatoes since we have so much shade we can't grow them!  I also didn't get any of the small pickling cucumbers that make yummy cucumber sandwiches.  I did find a wooden box ONE day of them at our grocery store!

 

I'll never get enough canteloupes!  Not musk melons that appear to have cutting stripes in the netting.  They're "wet".Smiley Sad

 

I didn't feel up to making pasta salad; potato salad and deviled eggs, only made an appearance for Easter when I did a brown sugar spiral sliced ham. 

 

Next time I'm off, I may just "cut lose"!

 

Anyone else?  What did you miss?

I didn't get my fill of peaches this summer.

 

I planted cantaloupes and harvested the last of them a few days ago.  I have a whole fridge full...getting tired of eating them.

Peaches from my favorite peach farm, and bi-color sweet corn.

I missed fresh tomatoes...it was so wet in my area, people didn't have good luck with their gardens.  Only had a few this summer.

 

Better luck next year!

It just occured to me that I forgot to buy any melon this summer, which I dearly love.  We have trouble getting good fruit here since little is grown locally.  It just slipped my mind.

California navel oranges. They were so sweet this year.

The valencias out now are sour.

Watermelon and cantaloupe!  

 

I did have lots of both this year.  The dog, the bird, and I really love it.   But I wish it didn't have to end until next summer.    I had some of THE best watermelons this year.  Sometimes I have days where I really don't want to eat at all.  On days like that I enjoyed eating just watermelon for lunch or dinner.

Ranier cherries.  I live in Phoenix.  They have a very short season here.  Maybe a month and most of that month very expensive.  But I just love them so.

One of my favorite things in the world is fresh corn on the cob with lots of butter and salt.   I didn't get any this summer due to an issue with the caps on one or two of my front teeth.   I missed it sooooooo much.   Hopefully they will be fixed by next summer.
