  • Summer bounty: Memories of good and fresh eating

    One of my favorite things about summer is having fresh “vineripe” fruits and vegetables available. It’s too good to miss.

    Growing up on a farm in southwestern Michigan meant a large part of my spring and summer involved picking (harvesting) an endless bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables and helping my mother can and freeze them for our winter enjoyment. 

    My father was not only a fruit farmer — as were many of his relatives and other families in that region of Michigan — we had a small herd of about 40 prized Guernsey cattle.

     I am sure this past week has been a busy one for all of you — cookouts, family get-togethers and graduations.
