The Connecticut pick-your-own strawberry season is short, usually lasting only from early or mid-June to early July; don’t miss out! There are so many great strawberry-based recipes you can prepare with the kids, too: homemade jam, strawberry shortcake, berry tarts, or simply enjoying fresh fruit in cereals, salads, or as an ice cream topping.
