I have a confession.... I haven't picked fresh strawberries from a local farm or garden in years.  The only and last time I remember picking strawberries was nearly 25 years ago (not to give up my age or anything) when my family grew them in our backyard.  My family didn't necessarily have a green thumb, but the crop happened to be already planted in the house we purchased during my elementary years.  In addition to the strawberries we also grew asparagus.  Such a fun memory!
