This month's notes: August 2016: Blueberries have a very brief season usually just 3 or 4 weeks (June in the South, July in the North and August in the far north). Similarly for peaches (July South or August in the North); so, don't miss them: See your state's crop availability calendar for more specific dates of upcoming crops. And see our guide to local fruit and vegetable festivals, such as tomato, corn, peach or blueberry festivals. Organic farms are identified in green!
