Strawberries are on the Dirty Dozen list for fruits and vegetables that are heavily sprayed with pesticides, so I like to grow my own or buy from a farm that sells pesticide free produce.
If you live in Central Illinois, you’ll definitely want to check out Scott’s Berry Patch. Their strawberries are just about ready, and they are wonderful!!!
