Ripe for Picking: Strawberries


Strawberries are our reward for suffering through a long, cold winter and spring. The season kicks off in May and, this year, should continue through June, according to Fifer Orchards. This family-run farm business in Wyoming knows how to celebrate the fruit, too, with its annual Strawberry Festival on May 16. But Fifer doesn’t have the monopoly. Dozens of farms throughout the state welcome visitors to pick their own. For a complete list, visit www.pickyourown.org. For more, including a delicious recipe, see the May issue of Delaware Today.
