Pick your own time at Larriland

     After enduring another winter with fruits and vegetables picked too early to have much flavor we are fortunately now able to look forward to once again going out to Larriland Farms in Lisbon to pick fruits and vegetables that taste the way they were meant to taste.

     Right now strawberries are in season and the other berries like blueberries and raspberries soon to follow.  Even though it seems like every year there are fewer pick your own farms in Howard County (remember convenient Dunteachin and Sewells?) no one compares in selection to Larriland.

   A trip to Larriland might also be timed to try the food, like the breakfast tower at the Town Grill in the Citgo gas station that had been getting some good local reviews.

     For those of us not wanting to travel out to Lisbon to pick your own Columbia has another source of pick your own fruit right now.

     Mulberries are now ripening all over Columbia.  You can easily identify the trees because the falling fruit from these trees are now staining many of our sidewalks.  You may need a latter to pick this fruit but it can make a nice dessert.   Here is one recipe.
