Strawberry Picking

We went strawberry picking recently it something I've never done before.   We decided to visit  Eckerts Farms, about 45 miles from my home.  I don't normally drive that far for anything, but for strawberries, I was willing to make a exception.  We picked 15 pounds ( yes, pounds) of strawberries.  Here are some pictures of our adventure! Now all I need to do is decide, what am I gonna do with all these strawberries.

Strawberry season is typically from the end of April to the end of May.  So to find a farm near you that lets you harvest your own fruit, visit PICK YOUR OWN website.
