It isn’t officially strawberry season in my world until they open those fields for picking. Yes, there are other locations near us where you can pick strawberries, but Larriland is my favorite.
Rows and rows of berries.
There are other choices for those in central Maryland. Gorman opened a few days ago. Butler’s is opening tomorrow for limited picking. They expect to have greater amounts ripe by Thursday. Lewis Orchards opened today. Many of us know Lewis from the farmer’s markets.
I couldn’t find any information on TLV’s web site. I know they grow strawberries for the market and pick-your-own.
When we stopped at Baugher’s in Westminster yesterday, they expect to open their fields soon, like Tuesday.
Just to whet your appetite, a few links to old posts where I used those luscious berries for meals, and for preserving.
Venison with berries, anyone?
Last year at Larriland, including making strawberry margaritas.
And, a link to my post about Kirsten’s strawberry salsa.
Seriously, you have to go pick strawberries, somewhere. This week. Do it. You won’t regret it.
