What to Harvest in July

By Allie Dhuyvetter, RD, Program Assistant, NDSU Extension Service

Know when fruits and vegetables are in season, so you can take advantage of what is growing in local gardens. If your faith community has volunteer food preparers, this information can help them plan recipes that incorporate produce when it is at its peak quality and freshness.
