The third way I acquired strawberries was by purchasing them from Poor John's Farm by way of Clarke Farm. This time I drove right past the Lilley Farm pick-your-own field:)
I also made a few other no-recipe-involved dishes for John. This was a salad with a variety of lettuces from our garden, Poor John's Farm strawberries, avocado (obviously not from around here), and pecans.
The next dish was a salad on a flatbread that I bought from the Heritage Natural Market in Virginia Beach. I sautéed some sweet onions from Clarke Farm, then tossed them with sliced strawberries and a little balsamic vinegar.
I guess raspberry picking will be starting in a month or less. Clarke Farm should be having pick-your-own raspberries for the first time this year, so please keep them in mind!
We definitely plan to pick blueberries this season for the third year in a row. (I'll be making blueberry cheesecake like crazy!) We like Erwin Orchards in Zuni (757-562-0156) and Drewry Farms in Wakefield - the site of the Blueberry Jam Festival on June 23rd! Check out their Facebook site for details. Sounds like it's going to be a really fun time!
Finally, here's a great site for finding pick-your-own farms in your area:)
