Strawberry Picking directions
Because the strawberries are lying on the ground, please do not eat any strawberries before washing them. There is a hose bib in the middle of the strawberry row. Wash the strawberry prior to a taste test. While picking strawberries, do not pull on the strawberry. The pulling action will dislodge the root system. Sometimes even the plant will come out of the ground. Instead of pulling, break the stem. You may want to bring a small pair of scissors to cutoff the strawberry.
Blackberry picking directions.
The ripe blackberries are soft to the touch and easily detach from the vine. On the other hand, berries that are firm, or hard to detach are not quite ripe and may taste sour. Taste test a berry for your preference. Blackberries are very delicate. Pick the blackberries in the bag, you intend to take home. Always keep the blackberry bag on top of other fruit.
