From my personal garden this has been the year of the cucumber. Good lord I've made two batches of bread and butter pickles with and extra kick (hot peppers), and refrigerator pickles. Tomatoes have also done well. Blueberries are doing fine but actually a little late as are the figs which have just started to ripen but that means I went from none to a quart in a day. So I'd say look for figs next in the DC area since I live in the Tidewater.

Hermiston, Oregon melons are in peak season. I look forward to them every year. Kookoolan chickens are in season as well. They are true pastured chickens, so they have a season. No Kookoolans from Oct-May.

Not quite what I thought of when I went to the Greenmarket this week/week end. This is totally prime melon time, also field peppers, eggplant and fresh soybeans. Huge piles of pimiento de Padrón and shishito chilies. However, my best haul was the above average sized Charentais cantaloupe that has been perfuming my entire flat ever since I brought it home, unbelievably fragrant. Will try it tonight.
