Due to the lack of sun and almost constant rain, it is hard to predict which crops will thrive or perish. In the normal cycle of North Central Florida crops, we should be in the thick of blackberry, corn and melon seasons, but if these crops survived the harsh spring, they are just coming into the farmers market.

Local and Fresh—
Zucchini


       Long and gold or round and green, zucchini presents itself in different shapes and colors. The interior is always reliable, tasty on its own or the perfect blank canvas for whatever flavors you can dream up. The only way to ruin it is to overcook it so keep a testing fork handy and take it off the heat “just before” it is done.
