One of the outdoor activities here in New York City  in this time of year  (spring till summer)  is fruit picking.

Fruit picking includes, apple picking, peach picking, cherry picking and even peking duck.

Frankly, of  all these years living in New York City,  I had have never been in a strawberry farm.  Today, we are going to travel  one an a half hour  outside New York City to see the STRAWBERRY PLANTATION.

Strawberry Plantation: One and half-hour drive outside New York City. Best time of year for Strawberry picking. Dated: June 2009

The deal for this type of outdoor activity is to  bring your own food.  Here are the regular food we usually prepare for the occasion. Simple yet, katakam-takam!
