National Strawberry Picking Day…Pick some berry fruits, recipes, and prints!

There’s nothing sweeter (pun intended) than strawberries when they’re in season.  And guess what…today is National Strawberry Picking Day

Strawberry season peaks in Florida around April, all over the South in May, and June for northern states, so unfortunately, today may not be your ideal day for picking the juiciest strawberries around the corner. But, fear not my fellow strawberry fanatics. While you may not be in proximity to a strawberry picking field, it doesn’t mean you can’t stop by your local grocery store for a fresh batch of sweet, plump, red, bright, juicy, mouth wateringly-delicious strawberries. 

Or, for an unconventional kind of berry picking, you can pick our Berry Sweet print tops!
