The first farm we went to specialized in cherries. This farm had row upon row of cherry trees. Some of the trees held ripe fruit, while some varieties needed a bit more time. In only fifteen minutes (seriously) I had filled up my bucket with more cherries than I could eat. Fruit picking is the sort of activity that can appeal to everyone- if you like accomplishing things, you can pick quickly and be done. If you like savoring things, you can hunt for hours for just the right fruits. I think everyone came away feeling quite contented from the experience.

Also, Happy Summer Solstice! I hope the sun is shining wherever you are!
