I was lucky enough to go strawberry picking last week before the never ending rainstorms began. Joe and I went to Verrill Farm in Concord, MA. It's a lovely farm that's close to Walden Pond so you can make a day trip out of it (weather permitting). The day we went strawberry picking couldn't have been nicer. It was a cool, dry, crisp morning with the sun shining upon us. As soon as we started picking I felt a sense of tranquility (and a pain in my lower back; squatting for that long is difficult!). Regardless of my back pain, it was a fun experience. We picked a basket full of tiny beauties. When we went to purchase our berries we couldn't help but buy their beautiful english peas, golden beets and easter radishes.
Here's a list of the produce they have available right now:
Peas - shell & sugar snap
