Strawberry Season!

It is mid-May which means only one thing for a lot of folks – Strawberry Picking time!

The endless winter of 2014 made for a slow start to the season, but things are in full swing now as all of the local spots are open and the fields are full of folks getting their fill of the tasty fruit.
Strawberries anyone?
There must be something about the sandy soil around here that makes for perfect growing conditions because we think the berrys around here are the best! There is a pick your own Strawberry patch just over the Currituck bridge in Point Harbor.  You can bring your own container or they have buckets available for you there.   You should bring something to put the berrys in after you pick them, and be aware that this is a cash only business.  They sell the berrys by the pound.  On Saturday the fields were full of families as well as fruit.  What a gorgeous day! The best thing about picking berries is that it is such a great family activity.   Here’s one of the author’s 10 year old twin daughters holding up a perfect berry.   Sadly, this berry didn’t make it to the bucket.  She ate it! All the best from the beach! By Tim Cafferty, President, Outer Banks Blue Realty Services
