One of my favorite parts of summer is visiting local u-pick farms with the boys and picking (and eating) berries to our hearts desires. What a treasure in the juiciest and sweetest berries you will ever eat.
By picking your own fruit, you also start to learn about eating in season. Which fruits grow during what part of the season. Strawberry season has already passed as well as blackberries and the first round of summer raspberries. We’re now into Blueberries and fast approaching are fall raspberries, peaches and apples. I encourage you to seek out local berry farms and orchards. I’m sure if you check out their website, they’ll have a great listing of what’s in season, what has passed and what’s to come!
