Hello all! I’ve mentioned it before, but I will say it again, there is nothing better than fresh fruit in the summer. Whether it is waking up in the morning to a nice ripe peach to put in your breakfast, or having been outside in the hot sun all day and taking a bite of a juicy piece of watermelon; I can’t get enough fruit in the summer! Rose thinks I am crazy for craving fruit after we go on a long run, but nothing else will hit the spot than a cool refreshing piece of fruit. Am I alone in this??
Well, to encourage my fruit cravings we decided to go strawberry picking! We went to Verrill Farm in Concord, MA. The day we decided to go also happened to be Strawberry Festival so there was live music, BBQ food, hay rides, and the likes going on. It was a blast and we came home with a few pounds of strawberries that we have been munching on in everything ever since. Yum!
It was the perfect day out; it was sunny with a light breeze. Good thing we put on sunscreen before we left! Our pale winter skin wouldn’t have been able to handle the heat. We enjoyed a nice picnic for lunch and listened to the band play. There were kids going crazy, high on strawberries and pony rides, running around all over the place.
We couldn’t have left without sneaking some homemade strawberry shortcake with whipped cream. They had a big batch made for the festival and it was positively delicious.
