It's strawberry time!!!

This just in: Blooms and Berries Farm Market in Loveland has strawberries and is picking! Start as early as 9am Saturday morning. Just call to check in advance. Here's the info straight from their email (sign up at their website) -

"The 2007 Strawberry season hours are: * 9am to 6pm Monday -Saturday * 10am to 5pm Sunday * Call or check availability at www.bloomsandberriesfarmmarket.combefore coming out in case we are picked out for the day or weatherconditions do not permit the field to be open to the public. We will be open on Memorial day unless we pick out over the weekend. Again, please call or check the website to find out if we're picked out for the day."

Last year I made loads of pies - too many, in fact - and froze a bunch. (There are still some in the freezer, in fact!) I think I'm going to wait for blueberries this year. Decided that removing the strawberry caps was too much trouble, personally. Maybe next year. But I do have great memories of picking as a child. (Maybe that's b/c all I did was pick, and my mom sorted out what to do w/ them afterward!)

Find directions and plenty more you-pick farms in Polly's list.

Pick a winner!

It is funny that you posted on this. I was just talking with my husband last night about taking our boys to one of these farms. I mentioned to him a spread you did two or three years ago and was going to try and find it in the archives. I guess I don't have to now.

Hey Shannan! Glad you found the posting useful! I really had a great time picking strawberries as a kid. I think that once I have kids of my own, I'll take them along too. It makes for such great memories. Enjoy!
