Getting Berry Picky

The weather here is very summer like and local produce is starting to become available.  One of the nice things about our new location, is that we’re not far from rural areas.  There’s a pick your own strawberry farm about 20 minutes from the house.  Sunday morning we woke up and decided to get some strawberry picking in before nap time.  

First up, drive to the farm and take obligatory picture with the sign:
