Either way, we loaded up that morning and drove about 30 minutes into Alvin to Frobergs Farms. The farm sits on about 2 acres of strawberries fields and while they have other fruit and veggies available to purchase, most everyone was there for the strawberries. You buy a bucket for $1 and then fill up the bucket. We filled ours for $7 which was a little over 3 lbs. Zach (and Alex) had a good time finding just the right ones. There are signs about not picking the green ones but as Alex said, our bucket was filled with a span of not ripe, perfectly ripe and overly ripe thanks to the picking choices of a 2 year old.
We ate as many strawberries as we could then I made them into a crumble cake for Easter. Now every time Zach eats a strawberry he says "I picked it!". I just let him believe it.
Despite the highly skeptical look he is giving me,
I promise he stuck his head through all on his own.
