Strawberry picking - 2013

The past few years, we've made it a tradition to go strawberry picking.  The farm where we usually go has stopped growing strawberries because the owners want to retire.  So we were faced with finding a new pick-your-own spot and we found a real gem: Jerry's Berries, out in the country, yet not too far from home (we're in Central Ohio).  And they're organic - love that.

So, here are a few pics from one of our strawberry picking excursions.  We only made it out to pick two times this year - the first time, we came back with way more than we could eat (I ended up freezing some of the berries).  The second time out, no one was in the mood to pick, and Mama had to pick most them (along with juggling my duties as official family photog).  Even though strawberry season is short, we enjoyed all the berries we picked, and can't wait until we can carry on the tradition again next year.




  1. Fun! We completely missed the strawberry season here this year - hot and early - so we will have to try for blueberries and raspberries.

    1. Sorry to hear you missed the strawberries! It's too bad the season is so short. We were going to go one last time and dragged our feet a day or so too long. Good luck in your search for other berries - you've reminded me that I need to find some local spots for other berries, too!
