preserved from our own patch.
I decided that I wanted to get a good stockpile of berries in the freezer for the upcoming months. I use them a few times a week in smoothies. So last week I took my 2 younger boys and we went to our favorite U-pick farm and in an hour and a half we had picked almost 40 pounds of strawberries!
Now I have a freezer full of berries! I paid $1.98 lb. You can get them cheaper right now in the stores since they are in season but this U-pick farm does not use pesticides or chemicals on their produce so I can feel good about what I am getting.
Blueberry and raspberry season will be here soon. I can't wait. Have you ever visited a U-pick farm? To learn more about U-pick farms or to find one near you, you can visit pickyourown.org.
