How are things looking up there this weekend?
Thank you for another year of great memories! 🍁
Do you have fresh green beans now? July 28, 2021?
What day will the strawberries be ready?
The strawberry season is coming in June to Hilger Family Farm! (Be sure to check with the farm before you go for the exact dates). My recommendation is, the strawberry season is so brief and a fresh picked strawberry is so good, don't miss it! This June, after getting delicious fresh strawberries at Hilger's, for great, easy to follow recipes to make jam, strawberry pie, or freeze the strawberries you get, see these pages (below). Be sure to pick a few extra quarts to freeze for later, for smoothies in the winter, or make jam later! It's easy! β€’ How to freeze strawberries: http://www.pickyourown.org/strawberries_freezing.htm β€’ How to make strawberry jam http://www.pickyourown.org/strawberryjam.htm β€’ How to make strawberry jelly: http://pickyourown.org/strawberryjelly.htm β€’ How to make Strawberry-rhubarb jam: http://www.pickyourown.org/rhubarb_strawberry_jam.php β€’ How to make fig-strawberry jam: http://pickyourown.org/fig_strawberry_jam.htm β€’ How to can strawberries: http://pickyourown.org/strawberries_canning.php β€’ How to make strawberry pie filling: http://pickyourown.org/strawberrypiefilling.htm β€’ Strawberry picking tips: http://www.pickyourown.org/strawberries.htm β€’ Strawberry facts: http://www.pickyourown.org/strawberryfacts.htm β€’ How to make strawberry-rhubarb pie: http://pickyourown.org/rhubarbstrawberrypie.htm β€’ List of strawberry festivals in the US, Canada, UK: http://www.pickyourown.org/strawberryfestivals.php β€’ Strawberry pie: https://pickyourown.org/strawberrypie.php We also have hundreds of other easy canning and freezing directions, from canning corn, freezing vegetables, making salsa, pickles and more! http://pickyourown.org/allaboutcanning.htm freeze strawberries: http://www.pickyourown.org/strawberries_freezing.htm
