Unlike what most people think, local grown produce is available only from October through June, depending on Mother Nature. Local farmers spend the latter part of August prepping their fields for planting during the month of August for harvesting in mid-October. After picking, they will replant again sometime in late December or January, also depending on Mother Nature. That harvest will begin again in March. Some crops will overlap so that we can have local grown fresh produce for those 9 months out of the year which is much more than the majority of the country gets.
The summer rains and heat create perfect humidity so the vegetable plants might grow. They will not set a bloom to produce edible produce during the hottest wettest part of the year so we give our mother earth a rest until September when she is ready to feed us again. During those hottest months, our produce comes from farmers in northern Florida, South Georgia and then North Georgia. When we need extra supply we will turn to the Carolinas to Tennessee and we even travel up the east coast of the country to try and meet the wants and needs of our customers.
Now you know why fresh green beans may not be so plentiful in the latter part of summer when most people think they should be easily obtained. It’s too hot here for them and they aren’t what we would call fresh if they’ve been in a storage container for a month.
