We stumbled upon this farm while taking a road detour and I was thrilled with the find. After living in Massachusetts where apple-picking farms abound, it was fun to discover a local farm that allowed us all to do some pickin' on our own. I've never visited a strawberry farm so this was fun for everyone, mom included. The 100 degree weather I could've lived without, but the thought of returning on a cooler day (75?) is tantalizing.
Along the way we discovered asparagus plants as well. I'd never seen one...have you? The asparagus literally grow straight out of the ground like a tall, thick blade of grass. It was quite the sight. The kids enjoyed learning a little more about where our food comes from and to be honest, I did too. I think we all have a little kid inside us despite our adult status :)
On the way home we passed a lemonade stand and had to stop and indulge. Ya gotta support the little people, right? Did I happen to mention it was 100 degrees? I really do love old-fashioned activities like operating one's own lemonade stand. I should do this with my kids. However, we might have to come up with a better location...
