Strawberry Picking Season Soon

6/08/2009 12:02:00 AM
There are lots of different fruits and vegetables that we're able to pick here in New England during the summer and fall. Personally, I've never done it, but I've heard it can be pretty fun and delicious. Here's what the Improper Bostonian has to way on the topic:

This is about as short and sweet as it gets. For a few precious weeks - roughly June 20 - July 4 - New England fields flush a familiar shade of scarlet. Strawberry season at Ward's Berry Farm and at many other orchards, marks the unofficial start of the annual pick your own season...

Has anyone gone strawberry picking before? They grow on bushes right? Seems like it'd be a lot of work to pick strawberries. I envision being hunched over most of the time. Also, for those of you that have gone fruit/veggie picking before. Where do you like to go?

    the "work" as you put it is well worth it!! The strawberries you buy in the store have ZERO taste compaired to what you pick fresh. Chose a natural farm or organic and you can pop a few in your mouth as you pick. Local, fresh food is REAL food. Otherwise check out the new film "Food, Inc." you will never see food the same.

    Strawberry picking around Boston -- not worth it! I forget where I went last year, but it was awful! The strawberries were tiny, they went bad after about two days, and it cost about $6/lb if I remember correctly. I'd love to know a good place to go strawberry picking, but for now, the looks like the only picking I'm going to be doing is at Whole Foods!
