One of my favorite parts of the day was watching Gracie pick peas. She pulled the pod off the plant, I peeled it open, she plucked the peas out, and popped them in her mouth. Then looked at me with complete wonder in her eyes, 'Daddy, more.'
When Hanno at Upper Green Farms dug up a few potatoes Gracie walked right up, stared them down, and asked 'apple?'
Hop on guys, let's go pick some strawberries.
The Jungle Farm is an incredible place to take your family. From choosing the perfect pumpkin right out of the pumpkin patch, to planting your very own flower planters and baskets, to riding the wagon to the corn maze, to enjoying the farm animals, or Gracie's favorite - picking delicious strawberries. She ate so many strawberries that I felt we should pay for an extra pound.
Farming is hard work...
I'm thinking we need to organize a client party where we all get on bus and head to the farm. Who's in?
