We heard about a hydroponic farm that had a U-pick strawberry crop and so a few days ago we decided to check it out. We belonged to an organic U-pick farm in Philadelphia a few years ago and loved the weekly outings to see what had become ripe and ready to take home. I love to see children get so excited over picking their own food, as well as the education associated with learning about where our food comes from. Since we just moved here, next year I hope to have a couple square foot gardens with some of our favorites.
Next week or so should be grapes, so we can't wait to load up our baskets! Are there many U-picks where you live? Here is a handy website I found on the internet if you want to see what's around your area.
