Sometimes the simple pleasures of summer can be the most fun (and delicious!). We love to pick fruit and vegetables from farms we encounter on our summer travels. Children seem to think fruit is even more delicious if they have picked it themselves.
This summer we did a lot of travelling up and down the Eastern seaboard visiting family and friends. We have picked corn, apples, pears, peaches, blueberries, and blackberries from assorted farms.
We even found wild grapes on Martha’s Vineyard. They were not ripe enough to eat though.
In one orchard in Connecticut, we found a sunflower maze to wander through. It was so pretty and so much fun!
As summer draws to a close, I shall miss this simple task of finding a farm on the roadside and grabbing some fresh fruit straight from the source.
What simple summer pleasures will you miss?
