Strawberry Picking at Creek Bed Country Farmacy

Happy June 17th everyone!  Can you believe that the orchard will be open in less than 2 months!?  I know I can’t!

One thing that I love that we don’t grow at the orchard is strawberries!

Luckily, this year, our friends and neighbors over at Creek Bed Country Farmacy opened their strawberry for the first time!  They’ve been open since Monday, June 15th. 

This morning, the girls and I had a small breakfast (you have to save room for fresh strawberries when you’re planning to pick) and we headed over to the Farmacy for some strawberry picking!

 

Strawberry Picking

When you get to the farm you can decide if you want pre-picked strawberries or if you want to pick your own.  Picking your own strawberries includes this fun wagon ride up to the patch.

We got there just after 8 in the morning so it was a little bit cool on the ride for the girls.  I personally found it refreshing.

Isn’t the view of the farm just gorgeous from here?

Once we made it to the patch, the helpers indicated which rows we should pick and how far to go down on the row.  The girls got right to work.

The berries are absolutely gorgeous!  And the picking is fast and easy.

I had planned on just picking a few quarts for fresh eating.  That plan changed quickly.  Before we knew it we had a flat full!

And Cedi got into it more than she normally does too.  I think they tasted so good and looked so pretty it was just too hard to stop picking!

Of course we had to munch on a couple!

My plans of three quarts quickly changed into three flats.  But – we did our ‘pay it forward’ for the day and dropped a flat off at my mother-in-law’s house.  She was beyond happy! 

If you’re looking for a great place for strawberries I highly recommend Creek Bed Country Farmacy!
