It's Strawberry Season: Visiting a Pick Your Own Farm


We're already well into June (Can you believe it?), and for me that means I see an increasing number in open farms stands. And since we're in the middle of strawberry season, I've seen dozens of signs advertising fresh strawberries for sale. This is the time of the year when I taste the sweetness of summer, or more literally, strawberries. I love the idea of stumbling into a wild strawberry patch and reaching down to pluck off my own delicious berry. Living in the city, I rarely stumble into wild patches of strawberries, but the idea still brings a smile to my face. Since I'm not growing my own strawberries, I find that the best way to fulfill my craving is to visit Pick Your Own farms (often referred to as PYOs).
