This week we took a road trip to a local farm to pick strawberries. There are just a few weeks left in strawberry pickin’ season, and we were able to pick oodles of fresh strawberries. We took my Grandma with us, since she had mentioned wanting fresh berries for preserves when I saw her last week. Between the two of us we came home with 23 pounds of strawberries and 3 bunches of the most beautiful & delicious asparagus I’ve ever bought. It was a wonderful experience for all of us. Even Sam, who HATES strawberries loved picking them!
Updated June 2015 – There are quite a few places to pick Strawberries in the NKY/Cincinnati region. In 2013 we visited Branstrator Farm, you can find them on Facebook…call ahead to make sure they are open for picking! And in 2015 we went to Dry Ridge, KY to visit the Red Barn Farm, visit them on Facebook to find out when U-Pick is available. There’s nothing quite like picking strawberries!
When we got home I made so many tasty things with our strawberries….
