My family is getting ramped up for fruits and veggies picking this summer [Bucket List]! Since I’m not much of a gardener, I decided to let someone else do the planting and we’d do the picking! A few friends have been asking about strawberry picking so I came up with a list of “pick-your-own” farms in Maryland that have been recommended by our readers. I’m noticing that some of the farms do not take credit cards so it would be wise to bring cash. A day on the farm typically takes about an hour so you may want to take note of the farms that have tables or areas available for a picnic. Happy Picking!
