Berries, Berries and More Berries

WE found a new farm for pick-your-own and fell in love! We went to pick strawberries, but will head back later in the year for blueberries and blackberries. It's a bit of a hike - an hour away - but it's worth it for a day trip.

They also had a playground, picnic tables, farm animals and some old-fashioned country games such as a maize pit (think a large bath of dried corn-on-the-cob kernels) and a water pump 'racetrack', where you pump water as fast as you can to propel your rubber duck to the other end before your opponent's rubber duck gets there.

Needless to say it was not easy convincing everyone to leave. The day ended with 8 jars of strawberry jam, a huge bag of berries in the freezer, and strangely enough, dried corn kernels in the washing machine and on the bathroom floor.
