I hope you’re enjoying some fresh fruits and vegetables from our local farm stands. They’re simply amazing. It’s a good idea to start thinking about freezing some of them. Did you know you can freeze tomatoes off the vine? Simply put them whole into a freezer bag, then during the winter you can have a little taste of summer! READ

It’s really feeling like summer. And with summer comes fresh fruits and veggies. For instance, local blueberries and raspberries are available, with peaches right around the corner. Don’t forget to freeze some of these delicious fruits. Toss them in a freezer bag, walk away and enjoy them in January! Just imagine, blueberry muffins on a snowy day, with fresh blueberries from the summer!
So, here it is already — July Fourth. It sure doesn’t feel like July or early summer but I’m perfectly OK with that. Local sweet corn is here! Support your local farmers. (more…)
The weather has been pretty nice. Actually, it’s been very good weather for strawberries — not a lot of rain or really hot days. If everything stays on course the strawberries should be around for a while. Cucumbers and zucchini will be arriving soon, with raspberries and blueberries also just around the corner. Stay tuned!

I hope everyone is well and enjoying the warm weather, which has brought on the strawberries. As of Sunday — when it didn’t rain — they were awesome. Many ask me how long the strawberries will last and I say it’s up to Mother Nature. If it becomes too hot or rains a lot then they don’t last. So get out there and pick some and throw a bunch in the freezer. (more…)
It feels so good to be warm again, doesn’t it? Leaving the bedroom window open at night and not having a frozen nose when you wake up in the morning is such a joy. The strawberries, however, are going to be a little late this year due to the cooler spring temps but they’re looking good. In the meantime, eat your spinach, asparagus and lettuce. (more…)
It feels good out there! Local asparagus is everywhere and many more local veggies will follow. Also, the strawberries are blooming!
