You’ll want to leave time in your schedule for a few of these National Strawberry Month activities. Did you know that May was National Strawberry Month? Even though strawberries aren’t ripe here in Vermont in May, we still get excited because we know they will be soon. I received samples of some of the items in this post.

National Strawberry Month Activities
Strawberries ripen at different times throughout the country so which activities you’ll be able to enjoy in May will really depend a lot on where you live. Even if you’re in the northern part of the country, there are still activities you can enjoy.
If you are in an area where strawberries are ripe during the month of May, one of the best ways to celebrate is by going strawberry picking. Check at your local farmer’s markets to find out which farms are open for business and when.
If you have younger children, there are lots of different strawberry crafts you can do with them. How about making this cute doily strawberry card or this cute egg carton strawberry. Older kids might enjoy making this strawberry scented playdough.
There are a number of delicious strawberry recipes you can try like my Strawberry Butter or my Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie. Or, you may want to try some strawberry brownies or hidden strawberry cupcakes.
Do you love gardening or would you like to get started? Learn to grow your own strawberries and you’ll be able to enjoy fresh berries for years to come.
If gardening and strawberry picking aren’t your thing, treat yourself to some strawberry goodies this month instead. I recommend the Fiordifrutta Organic Fruit Spread made with strawberries and wild strawberries.
No matter how you decide to celebrate National Strawberry Month, I hope you’ll have a delicious time!
