Strawberry Fields Forever

The farm where we purchased out CSA share for this year (Melick's Town Farm) has a number of pick your own crops including strawberries, pumpkins, apples, and peaches. Last Saturday was the first day for pick your own strawberries and we decided to see how Jackie would do with it. It seemed to me, like it would be a fun morning out of the house, and I had got in in my mind to do a few different preserve experiments with fresh local strawberries.

Don't smoosh them Jackie

Time to sit down

I'm tired of this

Time to go home!
We ended up with almost 8 pounds of strawberries, and also picked up about 2 pounds of rhubarb at the farm stand as well. It was a fun little outing, and I recommend it to anyone looking for good local produce instead of the stuff shipped in from California, or Mexico or some other foreign land. NJ is the Garden State after all.
