Strawberry Pickin'

One of my favorite spring activities each year is driving out in to the beautiful Alabama farm land and going strawberry picking!  We usually visit Witt's Farm, but after keeping the kids home from school and having the whole day planned we learned that they were closed so we tried out a new spot.  We went to Jerry Marsh Farms and we loved it just as much!  They are a working farm and had other crops besides strawberries that real farmers were tending! Jack watched in awe at the tractor and begged to climb on everything and stomp in every muddy puddle.  We went with a few of our friends and all of the kids had a blast!

Since Alabama decided to skip right on past spring this year and straight to the 80 degree weather we only lasted about an hour before we were all hot and sweaty.  If you are local and plan to go picking I suggest going early and calling before you go since they tend to change their hours of operation day by day.  It is a lovely drive through beautiful scenery to get to the farm and I promise you'll have more fun than you think!

Olivia, my little budding photographer even snapped a pic of the mommy's for us!

If you're interested in picking and live out of state check out this website to find a list of all of the u-pick farms in the US and Canada!

Now tell me you don't wanna go pickin'?!
