Yes, it’s true and just in time for Mother’s Day, local strawberries are in abundance. The Virginia crop looks plentiful after our rough winter season which provided a lovely ground cover blanket of protection.
Head over to Virginia Grown to find a location that’s convenient for farm market pick up or a field that’s ready for your hands to gently pick the biggest, reddest, tastiest beauties. Always a good idea to check with the location, many have pre-recorded announcements, to ascertain the daily crop potential.
Then visit a chocolatier and do some serious pairing: Chocolates and Strawberries.
