Prairie Gardens by Bon Accord is just one of the many farms enjoying the variety of heat and moisture this summer.
With vegetables and fruits ready to be harvested and picked, farmers are seeing a successful crop.
"It started off too wet, then it got too dry and now it's just right," said Tam Anderson, director of fun at Prairie Gardens.
Over 150 different kinds of foods are grown at Prairie Gardens including beans, zucchini, fennel, cilantro and kale.
"The vegetables and the strawberries have been beautiful this year," added Anderson.
Most of the locally grown foods are ready or almost ready to eat, but particular sweet corn and pumpkin fans will have to wait a while.
