We love fruit! We especially love local, vine-ripened fruit. It is healthy and allergen free.
Tomorrow, we are packing a picnic lunch and going to spend some time at a local farm that has pesticide free/herbicide free blueberries and blackberries. I am excited to eat as many fresh berries as we possibly can, and then freezing the rest to put in pancakes, muffins, smoothies, cobblers, pies, etc.
Every summer, we go to farms that have cherries, berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries) and peaches. The boys enjoy going to the farms and eating the fresh fruit (usually they do not wait until we get home). Doing this has really given me an appreciation for what is in season and I would rather give my money to local farmers. We look forward to picking every summer! It has become one of our traditions.

Make some memories and enjoy the "fruits" of your labor :)
