Officially opened today at Gorman Farms. You do have to check to see when they are open. They had some hail damage.
As for us, we got strawberries Thursday from Miller Farms in our Friends and Farms basket. They are also open for those who live south of us.
These berries made it into three different meals already.
Strawberries with greens. Such a simple great salad. I used arugula, romaine and the pea shoots from our baskets. A very easy yogurt dressing. Scallions from my garden.
The second use.
Berry yogurt. Besides some of the strawberries, I used a few defrosted blueberries. The plain yogurt from Pequea Valley. A little agave for sweetness. That small care package in the fridge went with my husband for his 12 hour shift in an amateur radio contest. A few hardboiled eggs, and some penne pasta I made the other day.
The last of the strawberries from Thursday? I ate them. What can I say. I love fresh berries.
Besides Gorman, there are other pick your own farms around here. Depending on where you live, you can find one not far away.
Like Larriland, or Baughers in Westminster, or Butlers Orchards in Germantown. They are all saying early June opening.
Berries are a fruit that we enjoy picking. Our freezer was stocked with berry syrup cubes, and frozen berries.
We will as usual go out to Larriland and pick at least 20 pounds. You can’t beat the price.
