Hi there! I am Emily, from the blog meme and he, and while Allison and Drew are off on their own adventure (let’s all try not to be too jealous) I thought I might share a favorite adventure of ours: picking our own fruit. While we currently don’t have space for our own garden, we love to explore local farms and orchards and take advantage of the “pick-your-own” season.
We have been amazing by how many fruits you can actually go out and pick yourself. In the past few years we have picked apples, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries and raspberries. We love the adventure of finding the best ones, and we often hold a competition for the biggest piece of fruit.
Picking your own fruit also tends to be quite a bit cheaper than buying from a store or even from the farm or orchard itself. The cost of paying someone to go out into the field and gather the fruit is cut, because you are doing it yourself!
This is the perfect time to do a little research about the farms and orchards in your area…most fruit is either in season or about to be! Maybe we will see you there :)
