Due to the “soft” winter, the strawberries

came in about two weeks early this spring.

We like to head for Thies Farms due to it’s prime

location.  Be sure to head for the Maryland Expressway

location, although Thies Farms offered U-pick

strawberries this year at the Hanley location too.

We like to pick near the playground, because the

strawberries are smaller and sweeter.

Look at this cool toad we caught!  To catch a frog or toad,

show kids how to put one hand on top of it,

rather than trying to cup it to catch it.

It takes some practice.  Make sure your kids

get a chance to catch toads and frogs,

it’s one of the great pleasures of life!

Several new families came out for the first

time this year, and many families came

out on their own to pick on other days.

It’s always amazes me that families often

already know each other.

Riding the tractor seems to be a highlight for

the boys especially.  We also had much discussion

of freezer jam, which makes an excellent teacher

appreciation gift at the end of the school year.

Watch the Green Spiral Facebook Page or go to

greenspiraltours@gmail.com and request to get on

the strawberry list.  The strawberry list alerts you

when the strawberries are ready in spring, and gives you

tips, like the date of the Strawberry Festival.

The strawberries were very abundant this year,

and strawberry picking is a favorite Green Spiral activity.

We’ll be back next year…

Thank you Thies Farms!
