🍓 Camera Roll: Buckets of strawberries

👋 Shafaq here! Over the weekend, I went strawberry picking at Froberg's Farm.

State of strawberries: At the Alvin farm, strawberry picking season starts in January and lasts through mid-May, and they host a strawberry festival throughout March.

  • The festival has attractions like a playground and a paintball area on the weekends — although it does close some days because of muddy grounds.

How it works: "Pick your own" dates vary, so check the farm's Facebook page or call in advance.

  • Once there, you'll venture out to the fields, where rows upon rows of strawberry plants await.
  • Entry is $3, the bucket is $2, and strawberries are $5 per pound.

💬 My thought bubble: What's better than picking strawberries with friends in perfect March weather?

  • As our bucket filled, we became more selective, choosing only the finest berries.

The bottom line: Strawberries taste so much better when you pick them.

What's next: It'll soon be blackberry season at the farm.
