Here on Active Rain, we all know that Bill of Liz and Bill Spear is a dual career kind of guy, but perhaps you didn't know that I have a dual career too. From May - July (and a bit further into the summer, but it does slow down) my second career is weeding, strawberry picking, strawberry processing (cleaning, cutting up, freezing, jam making) and leaving a bunch to eat. We can hardly skip a day, and we get usually this amount or more each day. About when the strawberries slow down is when the rest of our garden is in full swing, so it doesn't stop then either (tomatoes everywhere!) I'll have more pictures from our garden with other produce in the coming months.
If you are in the Treasure Valley or surrounding areas and you like strawberries but don't have any in your own yard we have some excellent choices for u-pick strawberries and other produce here locally. There is also a useful website that tells you all the details you need for all the u-pick farms in the Boise and Southwestern Idaho area.
Check it out - pickyourown.org.
Happy summer & have fun picking!
