All farm-pickers are winners

So who won the random drawing for a copy of Diane Daniel's "Farm Fresh North Carolina"? That would be Susan Campbell. Congratulations, Susan.

If you didn't win, you can find our list of Piedmont farms with pick-your-own crops. It's up on our web site, at

The list lasts for a lot longer than strawberry season, of course. It covers peaches, blackberries, blueberries, scuppernongs and vegetables like tomatoes and corn, and keeps going right through pumpkin season. So we keep it posted on the Web site from April through October.

It's great to know how well-used it is. I call each and every farm on the list. And every year, farmers tell me that people show up with our list in hand.

Stay tuned: Our annual list of farmers markets will be coming in a few weeks. It's good-food season, folks. But aren't all seasons good-food season?
