Sauvie Island Farms STRAWBERRIES

Beautiful strawberries are available for you to pick at Sauvie Island Farms.

This cool, damp weather has slowed the ripening a bit, but we still have great berries ready for you to pick. We will have an extended season this year, which means we should still be picking sweet strawberries thru the first week of July.
We have also started picking the Early Blue blueberries. This is our first variety to ripen each year, the blueberries LOVE all the water and the cool weather.
Raspberries are just starting to ripen also, if you want your first taste for the season, you can be selective and find some sweet ripe ones. Larger quantities should be ready in another week.
We also have some baby spinach for you to cut, a few herbs, lavender, and some flowers are starting to bloom in the u-cut garden.
The weather is warming up....our tractor pulled wagon ride is running each day and we hope to see you soon on the farm.

Strawberries...and breakfast!

The STRAWBERRIES at Sauvie Island Farms are ripe and beautiful!!
I found a new recipe this past winter, and my family has been waiting to try
it with some fresh strawberries. It is very easy to make!!

Puff Up Pancake:
1/4 cup butter
5 eggs
1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/4 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla

Melt butter in 9 x 13 pan in oven while oven is preheating to 425 degrees.
Mix eggs, flour, and milk with wire whisk or use blender. Add batter to
9 x 13 pan and bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve with fruit & powdered sugar.

It's so yummy. You should try it!! (We added whip cream!)

ps..the sun is going to come out on Saturday!! It should be a perfect
day to pick strawberries on the farm!
