I finally did it! I have been wanting to pick strawberries for years. It was even more fun since my friend and our daughters joined in the fun. We went to Spivey Farms
in Plant City. It was crowded when we arrived around 10:15am. I was able to park right up front at the end of a row of strawberries. We were handed a quart bucket and started picking. The cost was only $.50 per quart. Payment was on the honor system. It was very rewarding work! The sky was blue and the temperatures were mild in the high 70's.
On our way they we spotted a small farm stand on the side of the road. We stopped off on the way home at Brandon Farms Stand
and enjoyed some delicious strawberry shortcake and strawberry milkshakes. We even learned the history of the winter strawberry harvest in Florida! I picked up some strawberry jam too!
Here we are picking strawberries!
