Did you guess where we were? Strawberry picking in Florida! We drove by a hydroponic strawberry field, and couldn't resist. Very interesting! Berries stay clean, you aren't on your knees the whole time picking and no pulling the bushes apart and finding a creature under them!
The owner said that they are able to use 1/6th the amount of land doing it this way. My pastor's wife loves blueberry picking and says she can't stand to strawberry pick. I thought of her right away, because I bet this way she would love it!
