I love going to “pick-your-own” farms to pick strawberries! Growing up, my great-grandparents had a farm in Michigan, which had numerous apple trees. It was fun picking the apples off the trees and hearing the “crunch” from biting into a freshly-picked apple. Dee-licious!

If you live in the south, a fun date idea is to consider a day or weekend trip to a farm in Atlanta, Georgia. Spending the day on a farm is a great experience!

Here is a calendar of months that are best to pick fruits & nuts in Georgia:

July through October

October through December

April through July
Strawberries and Blueberries

May through August
