House Works: Picking Strawberries

Most health experts say you should put a little more fruit in your diet. And they want you to exercise. Here's a way to do both...get outdoors and pick strawberries at a local strawberry patch!

This House Works takes us to a patch just north of Lincoln. You can enjoy the art of picking strawberries and teach your kids about agriculture as well.

Barbara Martin and her husband own Martin's Hillside Orchard. If you don't make it out to Martin's for the strawberries, you can enjoy making some great memories this fall by taking your family to pick apples. Martin's Hillside Orchard has about five acres of apple trees, and there are plenty of fun fall activities for the kids, too.
