My kids and I enjoyed our strawberry picking this year. It's our first time to do this together and I'm glad it turned out alright. The kids are ready to know whether the strawberry are ripe or not. It was raining before we went to the local farm so we ate some strawberries on spot (making sure there's no dirt outside the strawberry). Man! It was delicious! It was not hollow on the inside and the taste was sweet! Went home with 6 pounds of strawberries and I paid $12. Not bad, huh? It's nice that we can support our local farms this way. I remember buying some in the store before that, and they sometimes have cheap prices but the strawberry is hollow on the inside and when you eat it, it's tasteless. Must be different variety but I'm glad the ones we picked are so good!
How about you, do you like to eat strawberries? Have you tried strawberry picking too?
