Pick Your Own Strawberries

The Pick Your Own Strawberry season was a little late this year in my area of Bucks County, PA, but it was definitely worth it! I was able to go to Tabora Farm and Orchard last Friday and pick about 6 or 7 pounds of delicious strawberries. They said the season should continue for another week and a half to two weeks, so you still have time!

If you don't live near Tabora Farms, you can check www.pickyourown.org for a farm close to you.

It was a fun day! I spent most of Saturday cooking and baking, and of course taking pictures. Later this week I will post some of my strawberry recipes, including Individual Strawberry Shortcakes, Strawberry Freezer Jam, and Strawberry Ice Cream.

It has been so cool out, I haven't been thinking much about grilling. Later this month I will post some of my summer favorites for the grill!
