“In our society growing food ourselves has become the most radical of acts. It is truly the only effective protest, one that can ―and will ― overturn the corporate powers that be. By the process of directly working in harmony with nature, we do the one thing most essential to change the world ― we change ourselves.” ― Jules Dervaes
Strawberries are a really easy & delicious fruit for the home gardener to grow! Even if you don’t have a garden, you grow these beauties in a container. You may not be able to overwinter them if you live where the snow flies, but in warmer climates, you bet you can.
Strawberries are also a fun thing to have the kids help you grow… and boy oh boy, do they love the harvest. I’ll be sharing with you my recipe for Homemade Freezer Strawberry Jam at my blog today as well, so be sure to head over there for more on strawberries!

It looks like making strawberry jam can be fun, especially if you enjoy cooking and experimenting with new recipes. I clicked through to your recipe and it looks simple enough. I am guessing that it might be too late to start growing strawberries, so I might have to just purchase some at a farmers market.

Hey Paul! Thanks for the visit!
Actually you can start a patch of strawberries this spring. You will get a decent harvest this year. But if you decide not to, then supporting your local farmer at a farmers market is absolutely the next best thing!
I remember when I was young, I would go to the fields next to our house and pick buckets filled with wild strawberries. They were much smaller than cultivated one but oh so good made in my grandmother’s jam! Now I love to make freezer jam! Thanks for all your great tips.
