What seasonal foods do you look forward to?

For some reason I can almost taste a North Carolina vine ripened tomato right now, sliced and eaten on toasted ciabatta with Duke's mayo and salt and pepper. I lived on them one summer before I had my daughter. They are coming into season at some point here, I had a local greenhouse one that was pretty good in a basil and buffalo mozzarella salad the other day and I think that spurred this on.
What kinds of local foods do you essentially live on when they're in season?

          Definitely watermelon. But also corn, tomatoes, artichokes, berries and (later in the year) squash.

        2. I live in Loudoun County VA. Peaches and tomatoes!

              And when we go over to Delaware for our annual beach vacation, corn, cantaloupe, watermelon, and lima beans too!

                It's all starting to sound good now!

          2. Asparagus, cherries, and blueberries.
