What's in season in October 2020, and other timely information:

Notes for October 2020: Summer is almost here! Strawberry season is finished in all but the far northern ands cooler areas. Blueberries, blackberries are in season in most areas, also tomatoes, peaches and most vegetables . Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.

Now, more than ever, going to a farm, being outside, away from crowds, getting fresh, local produce, makes more sense than ever before! It's a fun, safe and educational to pick some fresh berries, fruit and veggies and more, then come back here to learn how to freeze, can, make jam, salsa and much more! Of course, check with the farm before you go, both to check on crop availability and hours.  We also have a state-by-state guide to Farm COVID-19 requirements here.

See our comprehensive list of easy 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. 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, using similar sounding names.  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  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong or outdated, please write me!

Canners, both waterbath canners and pressure canners, are getting hard to find as people are doing more home canning than ever before. You can still get them online (see links at left) but prices are going up as the less expensive models are selling out.  Food dehydration is becoming a popular and inexpensive alternative; see this page about drying your own fruits and vegetables and where to get a food dryer.

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!

See these pages to find a local Strawberry Festival, or a Cherry or cherry blossom festival or a Blueberry festival. Some may still be held in 2020.

    "Went 6/22/2013 and there were a lot of blueberries. I took my 3 year old and she had a lot of fun. The bushed in the back were smaller so she could pick from the bottom while I picked from the top. We picked 4.5 lbs of berries in about 45 minutes but could have easily picked more.

    " My family visited the Williams Blueberry Farm on Stratton Road in Jacksonville, FL on June 15, 2013. A very nice family owns a manicured blueberry patch in a residential area that is easy to reach from I-10. We have gone every year since 2009 to pick the berries here. Great berries but you need to be there no later than 8 am or you will miss them due to their popularity. Partial shade from mature pine trees and nice crowd of people make for a pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend it for 2014, but call first to make sure the berries are ripe as they seem to fluctuate from year to year based on the severity of the winter."
    Comments from a visitor on June 11, 2011:
    "Visited the Williams' farm off Stratton Rd June 11, 2011. Tons of big ripe berries and tons yet to ripen. Smaller farm with nice owner. No mosquito trouble here for us as mentioned at other farm posts."
    Comments from a visitor on June 10, 2010:
    "We chose this farm as a secondary farm. The berries were very plentiful for the first day of picking but there were many many many more to ripen. We arrived at about 10 am on Sat June 5th and the pickings were plentiful. Farm is clean, and the area is nicely cut. Berries are all most easy to pick and stools are not needed. They are very accommodating and we will probably go back again next year. Berries were $3.00 per pound. Highly Recommend! Thanks "
