Summer is the absolute best for many reasons: There's that whole warm weather thing, hanging out at the beach, and no school for the youths. But let's be real, the reason summer is so very awesome is the produce selection. From your local farmers market to your average grocery store, there are tomatoes, delicious fruit, and more squash than you could ever consume.

July's Instagram theme for The Kitchn was all about summer's best produce, and you had a lot of delicious things to share. See a few of our favorite photos from last month to get inspired!

Here are a few of our favorites Instagram photos from July:

August's Instagram theme is outdoor living (grilling, picnics, cocktails alfresco). Share you photos by tagging them with #thekitchn, and we'll repost our favorites all month!
