August is #NationalPeachMonth. It’s harvest season here in New York, when the public has the opportunity to go to local farms and pick our own produce. Most farms are open from April-November for picking. Now is the time for peaches, tomatoes, green beans and other late summer produce. This blogging event is to promote #eatlocal and support your local farmers. Go to your local UPICK farm or your local farmer’s market or whatever direct farmer purchase system you have in the country you reside in. Post any recipe using the product you picked and/or purchased.
I was trying to think of a cool #giveaway to go with the theme of #eatlocal and for anyone who donates $25 to GrowNYC, I will offer FREE advertising on my blog sidebar for 1 month!
