U-PIC Strawberry Fields …
My daughter (who lives in New York) was surprised that we (in North Carolina) still have fields producing strawberries this late in the season … but we do and that’s me getting ready to hand pick them at just $1 per pound !
Admittedly the field was nowhere near as full of strawberries as it had been earlier but I was still able to fill the bucket in less than 20 minutes. When I got home I froze a bunch and still had plenty of fresh ones for my cereal… all for the total cost of $5.45.
The whole experience reminded me of when I was a child and we would celebrate the first Sunday of strawberry season with pancakes covered with real home-made whipped cream and topped with the berries we had picked. It didn’t get much better than that !!
Writing this makes me wish I’d picked more and, since the owner said that they will stay open until June 1st I think I’ll do just that.
