For years, I have wanted to take the boys strawberry pickin and each time I brought up the idea it was met with little enthusiasm. On the first day of summer break, I didn’t ask, I told the crew to load up the car and we were heading out to the country. :)
Needless to say the boys had a BLAST and we are planning on going back to pick blackberries in late June or July when they are ready. I’m already dreaming about the blackberry cobbler we’ll be making with those.
We went to Gieringer’s Orchard and it was such a great place. It didn’t feel commercialized but like a real farm (because it is :)).
By the way, the berries were fantastic!
