Strawberry Patch

It was a beautiful Wednesday morning, perfect for early June. The kids and I piled into the van and set off to meet friends at the strawberry patch. It was a quaint little place set off a winding road.

This is starting to sound like the making of a pretty good book. Lol! This was our very first trip to a strawberry patch. We are a strawberry lovin' family and it's hard to believe we've never been to pick any.

It was a small farm but what it lacked in size, it made up for in charm.
It took a short time for all our friends to arrive so in true Darnetha fashion we explored and took way too many pictures. We spent the longest time peeking around their general store. They had a little bit of everything, even Chinese sodas.
Since we are newbies to this whole new world of strawberry pickin', we quickly found out that it was the end of the season and all the big juicy strawberries were gone.

It was kinda sad but we searched anyway and found some little ones. The kids got muddy running through the rows of plants trying to locate a red gem. I had fun watching them while catching up with my girlfriends.
We have already marked our calendar for early May to come back next year.
See ya soon!

  3. Glad you and your kiddos had fun! When my kids were little we went to a sunflower/zinnia patch. There were so many bees it was hard to truly enjoy the experience. Now that they're older I'd love to try picking berries.
