What's in season in April 2019, and other timely information:

Notes for April 2019: Not much growing outside at this time of year, unless you live in southern California, southern Texas, Florida or along the Gulf coast where citrus are ripe, and believe it or not, the blueberry and strawberry season in those areas is about to start. See your state harvest calendar .  And this is a good time to learn how to preserve foods ahead of the season, like making applesauce or jam. See our comprehensive list of easy home canning, jam and jelly making, 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. It is also a great time of year and easy to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me!

    A visitor writes on June 02, 2013: "My friend and I went there on 05/15/2013. Bushes are loaded, area trim, porta-johns on site, shaded area with chairs available. Only problem was the guy in charge was arrogant and not customer-service oriented at all. So be aware. He puts you a row and you can't stray from that row or else! Would never bring children there. Probably won't go there again myself. He may have rubbed me wrong - but not a good experience."
