Trying to decide what to do with your first full day of summer vacation? Strawberry season is winding down, so we're planning to load up on fresh berries at a pick your own berry farm this Friday, May 28.
If you've never picked berries with your children, I can tell you that my girls love it. OK, they love it for about the first hour. After that, they tend to sit in the shade, sip their water and play while I finish gathering berries for cobblers, ice cream or muffins. But if your child is young enough to hang out in a sling or old enough to pick berries, this is a fun outing.
Pictures are from last year's blueberry and blackberry picking. (Don't worry, we'll still do that this year. Those berries ripen in mid to late June.)
If you are interested in joining us, let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) since I will call the farm Thursday to make sure berries are still on the vines.
