Summer is one of 4 seasons (Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall)
Summer officially starts on June 21, also called the Summer Solstice
It is the longest day of the year and the shortest night
Summer is the warmest season. Although we can grow a garden year round where we live, in many places where it snows in the winter, people plant gardens in the spring that will have vegetables to eat in summer. Some common summer veggies are: tomatoes, squash, peas. Do you have vegetables growing in your yard?
In the spring, the fruit trees and plants had flowers. Now they are getting fruit. Some fruits that are ready to eat in the summer are: plums, peaches, apricots, berries
