It’s Strawberry Season in Michigan, Here’s Where To Go
When I think of strawberry season my mouth starts to water, why, because I start thinking about one of my favorite desserts. Strawberry shortcake with lots of whip cream. Or how about homemade strawberry shakes, and of course chocolate-covered strawberries.
YUM. Well, the season is underway here in the Mitten now through mid-July.
This Is Why You Should Hurry
Look for Michigan strawberries in-store now, Strawberries are the sweethearts of summertime! Yep, most Michigan strawberries are picked by visitors at u-pick farms says amp/freep.com. You better not blink either or you will miss it, because the season is short running 3 to 4 weeks. It all depends on the crop, the weather, and the farm location.
