271/94

New Jersey, aka the Garden State, offers no shortage of fruit and vegetable “U Pick” farms. May starts off the harvest parade with strawberries being ready for the picking around Memorial day. July offer fresh peaches off the trees and blueberries and raspberries can be picked by the hand full off of the bushes. August is prime time for many vegetable. Tomatoes are ripe and at the ready for salads and sauces. The harvest continues through Autumn with all the making for a Thanksgiving feast; corn, pumpkins, and apples, along with cranberries for the sauce, to go with the turkey, and grapes for a nice glass of Almond berry wine.

This is awesome. I never would have guessed that NJ had a lot of farms like that.

Nice shot. And what a blessing to have so much yummy stuff available to you. I love to take the kids to places like this, but we have so little of it around here.
