Strawberry Picking on a Weekday Morning
Two weeks ago on an early Wednesday morning, we decided to stop by a strawberry u-pick farm for some early morning "stop and smell the flowers" moments.
If you ever need one of those at this time of the year (May-June), stop by for a few minutes of fruit-picking in one of the u-pick farms.
As we've always recommended to Brentwood area residents, if you are in the area and can afford to do your fruit-picking during a weekday, do so. It is a whole lot better than joining the crowd on a weekend. There's less traffic, less pickers, more parking spaces, and better quality fruits.
You can take all the pictures you want. Pose as much as you want, or find that perfectly-shaped fruit to take a picture of. You can even have a nice, relaxed chat with the farmer.
Farms are usually open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. during fruit-picking season but do call the farm for their hours, at it can sometimes vary depending on fruit availability.
Here's the link to the Harvest Time Brentwood website for the contact information of the different farms.
