Monday my niece and I visited Boxx Berry Farm to pick our own strawberries from their fields. I’ve never done this before and with “homegrown” and “organic” being on the rise I was excited to do it.
First of all, let me just tell you how blown away I am by all the GREEN around here!! It’s so beautiful!
We grab our bucket, get told which aisle to start on, and get to pickin’!! Well, obviously Amanda gets started while I’m snapping photos. Aunt Chris if you get to read this….I now know how you felt when we were growing up and why you always had that camera of yours out!!
We ended up picking almost 5lbs. of strawberries! But at less than $2/pound it was well worth it.
I had the nice young lady working there take our photo. We wanted to start eating them on the drive home but decided we’d better wash the dirt of first! It was worth the wait to have them as our dessert after dinner. They were the best strawberries I’ve ever eaten!! I honestly didn’t know how terrible store bought berries were until now. I don’t think I can ever eat those again!
If you are in Whatcom County and haven’t been to Boxx Berry Farm I highly suggest doing so! It’s a great venture to take the kids to while they’re out for summer.
Hours: Mon-Sat 9-5:30 pm, Sunday 10-3:30 pm. You must show up a half hour before closing to pick.
I looked ahead and the raspberry season will open sometime after July 5th. Blueberry season will begin after July 15th. I’ll be back to pick those for sure!!
Cheers to happy and healthy eating!
