Pick-Your-Own Farm Markets

If you have never been to a pick-your-own farm then you have been missing out. We recently went to a place called Larriland Farm in Woodbine, MD. They had strawberries, raspberries, peas, sweet cherries and spinach. We picked strawberries and raspberries this time. I think we had a little too much fun and ended up picking more then we needed. We ended up with 8 pounds of strawberries and 6 pounds of raspberries. We have already made several batches of freezer jam that we can't wait to eat. We are also in the process of making homemade strawberry ice cream and strawberry shortcake. We all had a ton of fun and can't wait to go back in the fall to pick apples.

You can find a pick-your-own farm near you by visiting www.pickyourown.org.

Thanks, I pass one on the road and always think I need to go and do that - but I haven't! Maybe we will just have to do that!!

I had never thought about making strawberry ice cream with what you pick. How fun! Enjoy all the delicious goodies that come from your day at Larriland!

We have a pick your own about 2 miles from our home. It is a LOT of fun. Can't wait until some of the fruits are ready.
