picking our own strawberries at butler’s orchard

during a break in the hot n humid june weather
we took the drive out to butler’s orchard to pick strawberries.

the orchard provided little green baskets for picking,
but we saw others with their own baskets.

sampling the harvest

we made a yellow cake topped with strawberries and cream.

we may go back soon because blueberries are currently in season,
or we may check out some other pick-your-own orchards in maryland.

what DC-metro area pick-your-own farms do you recommend?
