Last week MC and I met some friends at a local farm for a morning of strawberry picking. It was a first for both of us, and we had been looking forward to it all week.
The weather was perfect -- sunny and warm -- and the plants were loaded with ripe berries. Once I showed her how to pick the berries from the plant, MC quickly caught on to the idea and got busy picking. She would pick two berries at a time - one to put in our box and one to put in her mouth!
We had the berry patch practically to ourselves, so when she got bored with the picking she explored up and down the nearby rows.
We stayed about an hour and went home with around 5 lbs of strawberries!
