I mentioned previously (I think!?) that, in addition to our garden, we are growing some strawberries. We planted them in a planter because (a) we hear they spread like wild fire, and we don’t want that, and (b) our house was built in 1923, so odds are, there’s some lead in our ground soil.
Well, the plants are doing okay, not great.
So, maybe we will take our daughter to a farm to pick some strawberries. We’ve always thought she’d enjoy it. And this year, I think she’s probably old enough to do it. The problem is, where do you find these places?
Well, thanks to Consumerist.com, I found PickYourOwn.org, which has what seems to be a pretty extensive list of pick-your-own farms across the country. And it isn’t just for strawberries – these farms seem to have a pretty good range of fruits and veggies to choose from… at least in our area. There’s even a farm nearby which offers organic produce!
This idea seems like it could result in some good photo opportunities, as well!
