Peppers and tomatoes are brilliant this month, as are plums, sardines and aubergines. Late-summer fruits include blackberries and early figs as well as the first of the apples.
Although the new fresh ingredients of spring are starting to fade from memory, there are compensations in late summer, as greenhouse veg come to the fore: cucumber, tomatoes, runner beans and courgettes, plus stone fruit, currants and early apples. Mackerel is in fine fettle this month too.
