I know its been a bad, bad year for strawberries...(thank you, Mother Nature, for sending us an arctic blast for Easter...) but horror of horrors, my favorite U-Pick strawberry place (Scharf's in Millstadt, IL) is not doing a U-Pick. They still have some beautiful berries in their farm store, but I want lots and lots of berries to freeze, and, of course, to eat millions of while we can... and I'd rather not pay to have someone else pick them. Anybody know of some good u-pick options in the area? I'm particularly interested in strawberries right now, but I would also love to hear of any other pick-your-own produce you've discovered and would recommend.
I used to love Koenig's off of Cave Springs in the St. Charles area...but I've been told they no longer have a pick-your-own option? Anybody know anything?
