Last Friday we celebrated a dear girlfriend’s birthday with lunch & a trip to the farm for a day of strawberry picking. It is perfect strawberry season, so the berries were bright red & super sweet!
We hopped in a giant wagon & went on a tour all around Tanaka Farms. Not only did we get to see lots of different plants/produce, but we got to taste a bunch of fresh produce (literally freshly picked!) — green beans, yellow tomatoes, romaine lettuce, broccoli flowers, and giant carrots. It was so cute seeing all the kids in the wagon getting excited about fruits & vegetables, taha.
But of the course the highlight of the trip was the strawberry fields.
We got to go out and pick as many big, bright, red & juicy strawberries as we could fit in our 1lb. boxes. And when we filled those up, we could continue picking & eating as many as we could fit in our tummies! All the produce at Tanaka Farms is completely organic, so it was so neat to just be able to pluck up these berries & pop them in our mouths. By the time we left, our fingers were stained red with berry juice. They were — no joke — the best strawberries I’ve ever had.
A totally fun, nutritious, and educational activity for kids and grown-ups alike. I’m hoping to squeeze in just one more visit to these strawberry fields before the season comes to a close! If you haven’t already, you should check out fun berry-picking activities in your local town — the perfect activity for the beginning of summer. :]
