It's Strawberry Pickin' Time Again: Carteret County,NC
This is the time of year my kids look forward to...
It brings back memories from my childhood as I would sit in the middle of our own Strawberry Field and eat strawberries till my stomach hurt so bad I couldn't stuff another into my mouth. My parents said I would even eat the green ones...yuck!
We picked close to 15 pounds on Friday afternoon and there are no strawberries to be found at our home this Monday morning. I think we are going to turn into Strawberries.
You can visit Local Farms in our area and let your children experience the joy of strawberry pickin'.
