Ripe For The Picking.

By no stretch of the imagination is it easy to follow up Aline's story. (If you haven't read it yet, please do!) However, I figured we could hold on to her a little bit longer. She mentioned fresh strawberries in that divine Moelleux recipe, which means we all need to go pick some, right?


If you live in Athens, the place to do so is Washington Farms. I have yet to go, but I have tasted their sweet, juicy deliciousness firsthand (thanks Zach & LA)and I'm ready to put my boots on and get pickin' and nab some more. Farm fresh strawberries are the means to your summer pies, smoothies, health, happiness etc. Washington Farms has all the information on their website for the how-to's of picking, storing and freezing their strawberries. Check them out and make some plans, or find a similar place near to where you live.

(P.S. This is also a genius activity for kids because they make good helpers and learn about where their food comes from. If you have them, be sure to bring them along.)

Hurry on out there and stock up before the season ends in June!

What a huge strawberry! They're in season in the grocery store right now so I've been eating them every day. But I would like to check out the local U-pick farms and make an experience out of it and support locals!

Thanks for the reminder.
