It is the dog days of summer and okra is abundant! This time of year harvests get a little wonky and sometimes farmers need a break to prepare for the fall abundance but both Jana with That Foreign Chick's Bakery and Ms. Adrianna with Timberland Farms Grass-Fed Beef will be back to market this week! Spreading Oaks tomatoes are still in harvest but slowing until the second crops of tomatoes finish growing but right now Jason's second crop of cucumbers are in along with muscadines, sweet potatoes, green beans, peppers, and eggplant. Jason also has watermelons and so does Ms. Sue. Also look for Ms. Sue's shelled peas, preserved vegetables, honey, and pickled eggs.
