Strawberry season is a short AND sweet window of time in which to enjoy the ripest and most delicious strawberries of the year. I’ve always wanted to go and pick my own berries and come away with red-tipped fingers and baskets full of ruby red deliciousness. This is going to be the year!

My friend and co-worker told me about her family’s “you pick” farm, Diederich Strawberry Farm, which is what put this thought nugget into my head! They started “you pick” berries last weekend. There are tons of other places that do “you pick” of various other fruits and veggies that are in season. This cool website lists all kind of farms that do “you pick” fruits – strawberries, raspberries, blueberries. It’s called pickyourown.org and you can even search farms based on region. Enjoy berry picking!
