UPick, they grow (Part I)

We picked the strawberries from Boone Hall Farm...

the blueberries from Ambrose farm...

and blackberries too...

Now's the time for big, ripe tomatoes grown in our rich local soil. Well, almost. The word on the vines at Boone Hall Upick Farm as of today is that they are very nearly ready, so check back here for more news as they ripen to pick in mid-October. You can also call the local area Upick farms for info on ground conditions and what's available to pick. Picking fruits and vegetables is fun with children and the results are very satisfying - there's nothing like filling a bucket full of goodies in 20 minutes! Besides, your little ones are just the right size to do all the picking. I even had an offer from a fellow picker to hire my twin boys as they make light work of a field of berries! Support your local farmers!
Coming soon to a field near you!
