    It Was Fun

    And quite delicious. I went with my granddaughter and her children. We spent an hour picking strawberries. I spent most of that time watching the kids. I love those children so much. They were my main reason for going.The strawberries were a bonus.

    For one day in the summer, as a student (not a student of strawberries) i volunteered for a few days strawberry picking, i liked the open air, it wasn't too hot and i scoffed dozens of them in the course of a few hours. I was so sick, I didn't go back the next day. I haven't...

    Sparkle Strawberries

    When I was a kid there was a vacant field behind my house that was taken over by Mother Nature. In the spring it became a wave of purple violets. Daisies in the summer, and Brown Eyed Susans and Queen Anne's Lace later on. But my favorites  were the sweet little wild...

    I Pick Strawberrys In The Summer

    I live in Derby and we have strawberry farms right near us.  In fact I seem to have lived in a couple of places where strawberry picking is very close to us.  Strawberry picking is good if you actually are hungry as you can usually eat a few of the strawberrys as well as...

    Pick 'em All!

    I used to go picking them with my Mum and sister. Not that I ever ate them, I didn't like strawberries. But, I liked helping out picking them. Was a good way to spend Saturaday mornings!

    Nice Family Activity.

    Look for local farms in your area that let you come and do the picking yourself.  We have one in our area that does different fruit/berry pickings all year round.  It is the perfect thing to do as a family when you're strapped for cash. We went once, in the spring time...

    Little Ones

    When I was a kid we had tiny little strawberries on the hilll by my house (I'm sure they're still there in the summers, it's just been a while since I've gone looking for them).  I used to pick them sometimes when I was out there playing or rolling down the hill.  We...

    Oh, My Grandparents Had a Wonderful

    strawberry patch! I can remember every season spending so much time out in that little patch of heaven on the edge of their garden. I would always be bare footed & the feel of the cool dirt beneath my feet was wonderful to me! I loved to tend to that patch of splendid little...

    Eat Too Many

    I love strawberry pickin' (gotta leave the g off in Florida). It's fun to get out there and eat more than you pick. Your hands are stained red along with your mouth but so much fun. The kids enjoy it too but it does get hot with the sun beating down, even in the winter you can...
