Our first true summer adventure outing took place Friday. The weather was still cool. In fact, by 10 a.m. it had still not reached 70. We decided it would be the perfect day to go strawberry picking. We headed to Butler's Orchard, because it was one of the few orchards in the area that still had strawberries. Butler's also has a fantastic play area, so we packed a picnic with the plan to stay there for several hours.
Once we arrived, we altered our picking plans to include blueberries, tart cherries and peas as well as strawberries. The blueberries, cherries and strawberries all cost the same, so we were allowed to put them in the same bucket as we rode the tractor-pulled wagon from field to field. We drove to the field for peas later in the day. Bags were provided there and we were able to pick both sugar snap peas and English peas.
