If you include strawberries in your diet, you might consider buying some up now and freezing or canning them. Nationwide, there's a "glut" of strawberries, due to climate conditions in Florida that pushed their crop to coincide with CA's big crop. You can get strawberries cheap at farmer's markets in either area, or nationwide in grocery stores.
Not sure if the prices are super-low country-wide, or just in growing areas, but for those of us watching our budgets, this is a great time to pick up a lot, stick them on a sheet tray to freeze individually, then bag them up for use when they're more expensive.
Some farms are even opening up their fields for "pick your own" for free, or at very low cost, to avoid dumping fruit.
I bought a flat, and will freeze some and can the rest into reduced sugar strawberry jam.
