Our homeschool group had a field trip to a farm to pick strawberries the other day. You are probably wondering why we went to pick strawberries somewhere else when we have them in our own yard. Well, my son likes to go with the group and have fun with his friends.
We went to a farm about 30 minutes away that grows peaches, pumpkins, and strawberries, along with smaller crops of other vegetables and fruits. They read a story for the younger children, then we all got to eat a strawberry and have some strawberry ice cream. My little one doesn't like strawberries, but loves any kind of ice cream.
After our ice cream we took a hay ride out to the strawberry field to do some picking. They said because of the weather being cold lately and rainy the strawberries weren't as plentiful as past years. My son filled up his container pretty quickly anyway. After that we had a picnic lunch.
The strawberries from there were good, but ours in our yard are way juicer!
