Savor Summer

What is the essence of summer? Some might say it’s splashing in the surf, bronzing a marshmallow over a campfire, or lazing in a hammock with a good book. But for us at Organic Life, summer is all about the food. Summer is when our gardens are producing at maximum capacity, when the tables at our farmer’s markets are spilling over with an eye-popping array of colorful fruit and berries, and when tomatoes finally taste like tomatoes should, dribble-down-your-chin juicy and bursting with flavor. So join us in savoring the season—starting with our favorite healthy summer recipes, right here.
