Now Playing Tracks

Been very mad and frustrated lately due to numerous things. Hubby and I ended up talking about eventually putting a pond in the backyard. Not exactly sure if the HOA would OK that, but regardless we set this thing up over the weekend. This way we can get a feel for taking care of the plants, overwinter them, and then in the Spring decide if we want to take things any further.
I know I’ve been super quiet on the art front, but the drawing prizes are getting worked on. Promise!

For a set price, you and your group of…

Pretty sure the US does have pick-your-own-strawberries joints…?

I haven’t seen any where I am but that’s probably because I wasn’t looking but DAMN I WOULD BE ALL OVER THIS

Fulton Farms back home has always had u-pick strawberries. I remember doing this several times as a child, and yes, it is as glorious (and exhausting) as you would imagine.

In addition, the nearby city of Troy, OH has a yearly Strawberry Festival for essentially this reason.

But this isn’t unusual—many farms have a u-pick program of some kind! Pickyourown.org has a listing of several farms (for all sorts of produce—not just strawberries) that let you pick your own for a small fee. They even list some farms outside of the U.S.
