This is the season to pick your own fruit! We’ve done this twice now. Last year we picked apples when J was 2.5 years. This month we picked strawberries. This is such a great activity. For someone like me who can’t manage to grow anything, this is the only way he’ll probably ever see for himself where our food comes from (other than the grocery story!)
He’d much rather sleep in his crib.
Of course he loved enjoying the reward of his hard work too!
I’ve found this website helpful in searching for farms where you can pick your own fruit/vegetables. They have maps of each state so you can find farms for your specific county. For those like me who are completely ignorant about which foods are harvested in which season, they also have harvest dates for your region.
