Summer is upon us. It happens every year. I’m not sure why I’m surprised. One of the best parts of summer in my hungry humble opinion is the availability of fresh produce.

Note: Memoria Press sent us their Book of Astronomy Set (including one Student Guide and the Teacher Guide) in exchange for a fair and honest review.
