U Pick Strawberries

Strawberry fields, forever.
One advantage of the early Spring we're having this year is that strawberries are ripe and the fields are open for picking.  On Good Friday I ventured out north of town to Hunt's Farm to perform my annual ritual of picking strawberries at a U Pick. It's usually the first to the middle of May before the fields are open, but not this year.

You're never too young (nor too old I might add) to pick strawberries.

There's nothing like a bowl of fresh strawberries just plucked from the vines for an afternoon snack.  And I can't wait to make strawberry shortcake and strawberry pie.  YUM!  Stay tuned.
