It’s great being able to run into the backyard and snag a fresh tomato off the vine. But let’s say you garden like me, very limited and not really abundant yet, you may want to look into the option of visiting a local farm where they let you pick your own food!
Blueberries, strawberries, corn, pumpkins, apples, peaches… there are lots of yummy foods that come to mind that I’d love to get my hands on!
To find out where the local farmers are that will let you hang out and snag some grub, visit PickYourOwn.org to locate ones in your county. The website also offers great suggestions for picking tips and clear instructions on how to preserve your harvest.
Picking your own food is fun, fresh, tasty, a great learning experience, easy on the fossil fuels by staying local and it’s darn good exercise.
