Summer Harvests are in full swing

I am a 4-H Youth Development Educator and have been gardening and preserving the bounty for over 40 years. I love my garden and I love the products I have preserved by water-bath canning, pressure canning, dehydrating and freezing!

Recently I offered a 4-H food preservation: pressure canning program walking you through the step by step process of using a pressure canner to preserve low acid and combination foods you can enjoy throughout the year.

If you are interested in preserving meat, poultry, seafood, and low acid vegetables, Check out the program video at the link below.

Coming Soon-Red Raspberries and Blackberries are nearing season!

Do you love berries as much as we do? Can’t wait to get my first taste of red raspberries! Our berry season should open the end of June here at Quarteramish. Look for future announcements.

The freeze this spring did some damage to our plants, but we will have berries available for picking thankfully. Please call before coming to ensure ripe berries will be available.

To keep everyone healthy, we request all visitors remain 6 feet from those outside your family to ensure social distancing. Face masks are suggested except in high heat temperatures. We will provide a hand wash station and you must use our berry containers this year.

Blackberry Pickers Needed!

Blackberry season will continue for a few more weeks at Quarteramish.  If you have not been able to visit the berry farm, please plan to do so at your earliest convenience.  Berries are large and sweet but they won’t last forever.  If you have questions, do not hesitate to reach out.

Berry Farm closed today

Sometimes things take precedence over other things…..The Berry Farm will be closed today because we have the privilege of moving our son and his family into their first home!  The farm will be open tomorrow for picking.  We suggest early morning picking due to the extreme heat.

Thornless Blackberries are ripe and ready for picking

Thornless Blackberries are ready for picking! The berries are big, juicy and delicious!  Morning is the best time to pick for both you and the berries, as the heat of the day is rough on both.

We have blackberries in a high tunnel green house so you can pick rain or shine.  Most of the blackberries can be picked standing with little or no stooping!

We still have red raspberries, but they are coming to a close.  If you want red raspberries, now is the time to come and pick!
