    I vote for peaches, nectarines, unfortunately I have to get them at the store. I love it when they are so juicy you have to eat them over the sink.

    BTW - For you tomato lovers ... try growing "Black Krim" tomato. OH SO DELICIOUS!! One of the best tomatoe's I've ever eaten, slightly salty flavor!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Tesspug hit it right on the target. Mmm, peaches. But, since I can't find that, I settle for Jamaica. It is hibiscus flowers that are dried and you can make a strong, sweet, tart tea. Icy cold after coming inside from the heat, can't be beat! That and vanilla ice cream with fresh peaches. Yum!

We had a special can that was 18" tall and only about 6" diameter. We filled it almost full with water then dropped a stick (or more) of butter in it then put that on the grill to heat and melt the butter. When all was done, we pull the ears back and as they cool very quickly, we'd then use them as a "handle", twist the silk off the top, then holding the handle we dip it into the can of water with the butter floating on the top. Easiest way to butter an entire ear of corn. Salt. Eat. Repeat.

    As a kid, I held the record for most ears of corn eaten in one sitting ... 9.

    My love of corn on the cob was notorious and there wasn't a family on the block that could grill the stuff without inviting me over for at least one ear. I'd smell it and come anyway - invited or not, regardless if they had other company or not.

    Things that mean summer to me: wilted lettuce salad (with bacon and onions), and cucumbers and onions in vinegar and oil. Also, corn and tomatoes are so close to our hearts (transplants from the Midwest), but to get quality up here in Alaska is sometimes rare. We cherish good produce!
