Summer’s on the way. Can you smell the aroma of food hot off the barbecue grill?
Add some sizzle to your dinner plates with grilled fruits and vegetables. Throughout the summer, enjoy some seasonal fruits and vegetables. Later in the season, try grilling fresh vegetables straight from your garden or a local farmers market.

The State Indicator Report on Fruits and Vegetables, 2009, released this week by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, shows that North Dakotans should eat more fruits and vegetables for good health.
If I were capable of filling two bodies and living two lives, then one would have to have been as a horticulturalist as well as artist. Writing, art, cooking and digging in the dirt define the great loves of my life and the lives of many others. Before starting college, life was in a newsroom, flower shows, catering and gardening. Many of those activities overlap easily with children on hand (or lap, or whatever) and accommodating the kids was a part of life for us all.
Whether you grow your own produce or buy it at a farmers market or grocery store, fruits and vegetables are a colorful and healthful part of our diets. Now is a great time to brighten your plate with some of the fresh produce that’s coming into season.

The radish varieties come in an array of colors ranging from red, purple and white. There is even a watermelon radish that has pink flesh inside.
NDSU is testing the most popular greens from Asia. These greens come in many shapes and colors. They taste mild and are popular when mixed in salads or lightly cooked as stir fries.
‘Tis the season when everyone gets the urge to plant. And if you choose to grow vegetables, there’s no need to relegate them to a far corner of your yard, where they are sure to suffer neglect.
A vegetable garden need not be an eyesore. It can be an oasis of beauty, pleasing your eyes as much as your palate.

There is nothing quite like the anticipation a gardener feels waiting for the first vine-ripened tomato. It is the ultimate reward after hours of pouring through seed catalogs looking for the perfect variety, careful seeding, planting and coddling. Often gardeners are disappointed due to various tomato disorders. Blossom-end rot, cracking or catfacing and sunscald are all common problems of tomatoes.
A new group is helping promote fruits and vegetables grown in North Dakota.
The advisory board, which met for the first time this month, was created by Holly Mawby, director of Minot State University-Bottineau’s Entrepreneurial Center of Horticulture, which has been up and running since January.
