What's in season in April 2019, and
other timely information:
Notes for April 2019: Not much growing outside at this
time of year, unless you live in southern California, southern Texas, Florida or
along the Gulf coast where citrus are ripe, and believe it or not, the blueberry
and strawberry season in those areas is about to start. See your state harvest calendar
. And this is a good time to learn how to preserve foods ahead of the season,
like making applesauce or jam. See our comprehensive list of
home canning, jam and jelly
making, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access
recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search.
It is also a great time of year and easy to
make your own ice cream,
even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. If you have any questions or suggestions,
feel free to write me!

Floral Acres - Uses natural growing practices,
RR 1 Box 26E, French Creek, WV 26218. Phone: 304-924-6462.
[email protected]. Open: Call for hours and availability; the season
for picking lasts from the second week of June 'til the first week of
August, depending on how cold the Spring was, and whether we received a late
frost or not.. Directions: See their website for directions. Payment: Cash,
only. Our focus now at Floral Acres is our U-Pick blueberry operation. We
currently (2010) charge $1/pint. Because we have so many bushes, with lots
of different varieties; the season is long. These blueberries are organic,
as the only thing we do to them is fertilize the ground, and mow the grass.
We furnish buckets for picking and ice water - but you might want to bring
your own straw hat for those hot summer days.
Comments from a visitor on July 06, 2010: "The
owner is very sweet and helpful, they have been in business for a while and
know what they are doing. However, you are better off to show up earlier in
the season rather than later. We came one year in mid August, and while we
did manage to pick berries, there were much less than when we go in July.
They raise all of their blueberries with organic practices. They used to do
daylillies but are getting out of those and are more focused on blueberries.
The farm is located less than a mile from the French Creek Game Farm, so it
could be made into a good family outing of picking blueberries and visiting
the game farm"
