Buying produce at a store is good, but picking your own sure is better! There’s nothing like connecting with the Earth by harvesting its fruits with your own hands. Kneeling down with a basket to eye up the ripest and juiciest of the bunch, getting dirty while the sun beats down on you, sneaking a couple tastes “just to make sure they’re good,” and ending the day with a sweet reward! Before you head out to the strawberry patch, check out our essential guide to picking your own strawberries.
The Jersey Shore has always been recognized as the premier summer destination in New Jersey. But after the summer season comes to a close, the leaves have changed, and the holiday season is long gone, there are still plenty of opportunities to enjoy the splendor of the shore. (more…)
Once the holiday season rolls around, the goodness in people really starts to shine. Organizations big and small start to collect toys, coats, mittens, and canned goods for those who are less fortunate. There are soup kitchens, warming centers, shelters, and food pantries to make sure no man, woman, or child goes cold or hungry.
Giving back to the community helps us all realize that the world is not such a bad place after all and reinforces our faith in humanity. The Mill Creek Urban Farm is one of those organizations that gives back year-round.
When someone mentions the Pine Barrens, a few things come to mind: The Jersey Devil, “Piney Power,” and a whole lot of trees — over a million acres of them to be exact. That’s all I knew before getting a private tour by the most knowledgeable and kind woman at Whitesbog Village, a working farm and living history museum of the region’s blueberry and cranberry crops.
If you’re the adventurous type and love nothing more during this season than capturing the beautiful colors the leaves are changing, you’ve come to the right place. New Jersey is full of parks, forests, and arboretums that might be the perfect place to take pictures of the fall foliage, but we’ve rounded up some of the best locations for you. Be sure to tag your photos with #NJspotsFall when you visit!
