Local Organic Strawberries!
I was thrilled to find organic Seascape strawberries at the Big Lick Farm booth this morning at our local farmers market. Suzi and Asinete's farm is now "Certified Naturally Grown." This is a fairly new designation for small-scale farmers who need to avoid the expense of becoming "Certified Organic."
Conventionally grown strawberries are always on the list of fruits to avoid because they are often heavily sprayed with pesticides. No spray on these and only organic fertilizers are used. And they are sweet and juicy.
Suzi says they should have them all the way into September.
