Today was the day!!! We met some friends at Linvilla Orchards and had a blast! Take a look...
The whole gang ready to go for a hayride into the orchard.
We started in the strawberry patch. The kids were looking for fully red berries to pick.
Next were tomatoes--these are Roma.
We picked a few peppers as well--green, yellow & red.
My son enjoying some of his strawberries. They were really sweet!!
These grapes weren't ready to be picked.
The concord grapes were!
Waiting for our ride to the next stop.
Picking a peach.
I have to say...they aren't a good as Georgia peaches!!! (Perhaps I'm biased.)
In the corn field picking a few ears of corn.
Notice the clouds.
We made it through with only 1 child in tears! ;-)
Here's what we picked:
I gave each one a warm bubble bath.
Kari wrote in her nature journal while waiting for her bath.
Jaya shucked the corn while waiting for dinner.
It was a wonderful day! It was as good as I imagined and I'm looking forward to doing it again soon! I'm going to have to see if there is something a bit closer, though. I'm also looking for a recipe for eggplant other than eggplant parmesan. Any ideas?
