I'm in the mood for Pickin' and Eatin' is a great site for those of you wondering which fresh fruits and veggies are locally grown for hand picking. They also have lots of tips on canning, storing, picking, etc.

What to look for and when:
March - April: Asparagus
May-June: strawberries
June- July: cherries
June-August: blueberries, blackberries
July-September: peaches, figs, tomatoes, green beans
July-October: raspberries
August - Figs, Fall raspberries start, early apples
September-October: apples and grapes
October: late apples, Pumpkins
December: Christmas trees

I'm on the lookout for a strawberry field to take the kids to. We are trying to shake the beach blues and I think this would be the perfect sweet idea. If any of you know of a good one nearby let me know. (North Central AL) Have a blessed weekend :)
