Summer's Almost Over - What Will You Miss the Most?

Living in the S.E. US, I always look forward to enjoyment of cold watermelon, SC peaches (especially "Freestones") and vine-ripe tomatoes - not the mealy kind that are available in winter -  as shown below. Forgot to mention - boiled peanuts (I'm sure a favorite of all the "northerners"!) - See attachment below

What are some of your favorite things that you'll miss when summer season - not just foods - is gone?

    YUM! Love watermelon, fschumpert! One of my colleagues just brought in some fresh-from-the-garden cucumbers yesterday. Any recs on how to prepare them this weekend?

      Katie, if you aren't going to make pickles - such as "Bread 'n Butter" variety - and plan to use them right away you might consider peeling the cucumbers, cutting them in thin slices, and combine with slices of tomatoes and pour white wine vinegar over them and serve as a salad. You can also add a little sugar for taste. Of course, you can just put cucumber slices in a tossed, green salad as well. Then, of course, if you don't want to eat them, sleep with them on your eyes.......

            Thank you SO much, @fschumpert! We devoured them in a salad at our daughter's party this weekend, but maybe next year!

    I'll miss the longer days. My travel consists of a lot of driving and I prefer to get to my hotel before dinner (and before dark). That's much easier when daylight lasts past 7pm

    We keep the herb beds covered and growing through the winter so as to have fresh herbs available year-round, but as always, I'll mostly miss the fresh, homegrown vegetables straight from the garden.

    I will miss being able to cook and eat outside everyday the most.  We normally eat all meals outdoors from breakfast  on the deck, weekend lunches on the porch to daily dinners in the backyard.  I'll miss the sunbrellas and hammocks and laying about like a slacker.  Its already fall like here and already boots & sweater weather.

    Definitely the seasonal fruit and veg!  I will also miss not having to wear shoes.    I am like Agador from The BirdCage.
