Oh,yummy. Veryork is way ahead of this part of Maine. I zipped over Friday and brought Dad back here yesterday. Quite a difference in crop progress.

What are you going to do with them? Freeze? This year I'm freezing mine whole - wash, trim, single layer on cookie sheets in freezer, then bag when solid. You can buy them this way in the grocery store (whole, unsweetened) so thought I'd try it. I want to avoid sugar if possible. I've got 5 or 6 gallon bags full in the freezer so far.

Yum! Yesterday was the first box for me - expensive, but at my age I'm not going to miss one day of strawberry season!! Will buy some to freeze later when the price drops.

Here in the SF Bay area, we planted seven baby strawberry plants last spring and had several dozen fruit before the summer was over. They have very amply filled in the remainder of the available space and we are enjoying a couple dozen every few days. We are predicted to have some very hot weather again this week so I expect them to grow another pile of their luscious selves.

We eat them straight so no possibility for jam making exists in LyndaLand and that’s just fine with me.

Oh my goodness, that must have been a wonderful day of picking! I be the truck ride home smelled SO good...I love strawberries but haven't found a jam recipe yet that I've liked, you'll have to post yours for us to try. This has reminded me to check on my u-picks to see if any are open yet! So thanks!!!

Yum! I wash and de-stem; then lay them out whole on a large cookie sheet in the freezer. Then when they are frozen, I put them in quart-size bags for my vacumn sealer. Summer in a bag in the middle of the winter!
