Freezing Strawberries

Have you frozen some strawberries yet? Well, get on with it! Here’s how:

It’s Here! So Worth The Wait: CSA Share #1

It was a perfect summer morning; hot, but not too hot, a cooling breeze blowing at just the right interval to feel refreshing, and gorgeous, bountiful green vegetables waiting for me at Holland Farm on our first pickup day, which had been delayed one week because of slow growth due to unusually cool conditions.
