First Strawberry U-Pick of the Year at Mariquita Farms

It was a beautiful day in the Bay Area today – perfect for the first strawberry u-pick at my favourite organic farm, Mariquita Farms. This is the same farm I get my tomatoes from every year, although their tomato fields are in Hollister. Today’s trip to their strawberry fields and apple orchards took us to Aromas.

I think I’m going to let the pictures do the talking at this point. It was such a fantastic day, and now I have to figure out what I’m going to do with 20 pounds of strawberries.

Every berry was more beautiful than the last – we tried to maintain composure and still ended up with 20 pounds
