What's in season in April 2018, and other timely information:

Notes for April 2018:  Strawberries are one of the first major crops, starting in Florida, southern California and parts of Texas and working northward through April and May and into June.  But in each area, the season is only a few weeks long and highly dependent upon local weather and varieties planted. Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.  FL, TX, CA: Citus is usually available now in those areas along with strawberries and blueberries.

Children's Consignment Sales occur in both the Spring and Fall  See our companion website to find a local community or church kid's consignment sale!

We also have home canning, 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. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me! It is easy to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. Also note, there are many copycat website listing U-pick farms now.  They have all copied their information from here and usually do not ever update.  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong, please write me!
