I love strawberry season!
In Florida, strawberry season runs from November to April, and just yesterday it dawned on me that it is already March, and we hadn’t been out strawberry-picking yet! So we loaded everyone (plus a neighbor friend) in the bus and headed back to our favorite picking spot, the same one I blogged about last year, Bane’s Hydroponic Farm (now also known as the Keiper Family Farm).
Unfortunately, the prices have doubled since last year (I would assume this is due to the hard freezes that hit the area this winter), but it was still worth every penny. There is NO comparison to the store-bought strawberries. These are sooo tasty — sweet; no “bite” as in the store-bought ones…and these are grown without pesticides.
