Strawberry fields

Posted in seasons, food

The picking is great!

Strawberry fields

The berries are MASSIVE and sweet!  Perfect picking!

If you like picking, the season has started now.  All the pick-your-own places are open for business--organic & conventional.

My daughter and I joined a friend this afternoon.  With an 8-year-old and an adult picking together, we easily picked three flats in about 45 minutes.  I admit that we probably could have done this faster, had we not also enjoyed our "test berries" tasting, too.

We finished out with about 33 lbs of berries! 

Now, for the washing & eating!
