The fresh fruits and vegetables of summer are at farmers markets and supermarkets and there are tricks to pick the best one. Overall, look for clean fruits and vegetables with no bruises or breaks in the skin, said Amy Aldenderfer, Hardin County extension agent for horticulture. Food also should be sold in clean one-time-use containers. And if it seems early for a particular fruit or vegetable to be available at a farmers market, ask the farmer where the food was grown.
The production of “The Secret Garden” in New Albany, Ind., has closed.

The summer is here and we have already endured some very hot days. Hopefully, we are all eating less, exercising more and staying hydrated by drinking more water.
Water, the nutrient our body needs the most, also helps prevent dehydration. The effects of dehydration can range from thirst to kidney failure and are usually silent but progressive. Therefore, we need to pay attention to the early signs of water loss because before we know it we can become severely dehydrated.
