Strawberry Picking 2015

A couple of days ago, MC and I went with some friends to pick strawberries at a local strawberry farm. It was so much fun! This is the same farm that we visited last year.

The day we went was the first day of the season that the farm was open and the first day of really warm, nice weather that we've had in a while, so I was expecting the strawberry patch to be packed. But it was surprisingly uncrowded, with plenty of room for a toddler to safely roam. We were there for a little more than an hour and left with around 7 lbs of berries!

She was much more interested in picking the strawberries this year, so I got her her own box to fill. There is an episode of Daniel Tiger where the Tiger family goes to the Enchanted Garden to pick strawberries, and I think that helped her have a frame of reference for what we were doing. (Once again: thank you, Daniel Tiger and PBS!)

We talked a lot about only picking the bright red berries, and she did a great job of not picking the green ones. She picked berries for a while but once she got bored with that, the strawberry eating began!

Our friend was having a hard day and wasn't feeling very cooperative for the group picture efforts. Some days it's tough being two!
