I know Springridge Farms in Halton starts June 10th..... I'm not sure when it starts around here or for that matter where any farms are.

Where is the best place to pick in Cambridge/Kitchener??

Well I'm sure once the weather gets nicer, it will start next week, they needed the rain and now the need some warmth and sun. I love Herrles out Erbs Rd Waterloo by the dump. I used to go to Stoll's but they changed their hours so I couldn't get there. I plan on going next week, probably Wed if anyone wants to come. Of course I'll call on Mon to make sure they are ready.

Ha ha, they'll love it. \last year my friednd and I took 3 kids, 2, 3.5 and 5.5 and we picked lots and none of the kids ate one or even asked to eat one. We picked on one of the last days so there were slim pickings at times. my friend and I were almost done and remarked how funny it was that none of the kids had eaten any since they all love strawberries and that's what i remember as a kid. not two minutes later I turn around and there is V a good 5 rows over eating the hugest strawberry ever. It was huge and red and juicy and my friend and i agreed best strawberry we wanted to just go over and take it and eat it ourselves ha ha.

They'll have a blast!
