I love going to U-Picks. Not everyone always wants to go at first, but once we get on the road, everyone is happy. We usually get lunch either on the way there or on the way home. Sometimes we take a few detours along the way, but today was just a quick tomato trip.
We always go with a goal, today we went to pick tomatoes.We only wanted to spend an hour no matter what else we did while we were out. It only took us 30 minutes to fill our buckets, so we went for a few strawberries. No a lot, the price was a little high for U-pick strawberries. Even though this was a short trip, by the time we were ready to head home, the kids were covered in tomato juice and had strawberry beards.
It’s a good experience to pick your own food. To see where it came from, how it’s grown and to appreciate the people that do all the everyday picking of the items you buy at the store. It’s also good to see the amazing things God can do.
See you in the garden!
