Strawberry season is getting in full swing here in southern Florida, thanks to the beautiful weather! There’s a U-pick farm in Bonita Springs, so we decided to pick some strawberries after mass on Sunday. We arrived at Farmer Mike’s, picked up two boxes and headed out into the field.
The strawberry beds were slightly raised and covered with weed fabric, which made it pretty easy to pick berries.
Tom and Nicolas went down one row, and Bryce and I headed down a different row.
The plants looked great, and the berries were huge!
We had no problem filling both of our boxes . . .
and finding plenty to snack on!
Even after we picked our fill, Nick & Bryce couldn’t resist stopping for a bright red berry!
Once we had all the strawberries we wanted, we picked a few tomatoes, too.
These tomato bushes were loaded!
We also picked up cucumbers, peppers and an onion to go with our strawberries and tomatoes. I love being able to get fresh local produce in February!!
