Notes for January 2023: The warm winter means strawberries will be EARLY this year! Move the dates ahead by 2 - 3 weeks on our state crop availability calendars for strawberries; see your state's calendar for more dates of upcoming crops. Blueberries have already started in FL and TX.

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!
