Weekend Trip - part 2

Thank to a somewhat eccentric idea of Wilson and Helen (which I think stemmed from Wilson's sister), we drove 45 miles all the way to a farm in Wharton, set in the middle of "nowhere and goodbye", to pick strawberries, raspberries and peaches. I know it doesn't make any sense because you could just go to the store and buy bigger and cheaper strawberries and fruit there. But his was a fun, family-oriented activity which I encourage parents take their children to enjoy outdoor and learn something about nature.

Arriving at the "A You pick strawberry" farm

Getting buckets for the x-berry and peach. After you fill up the buckets, bring them here to check out. As I remember, a pound of strawberries is $2 and $3 for a pound of peach.

Rows of strawberry trees

Almost every tree has fruit. But these are kind of small comparing to the ones in California.

Peaches. They have about 15 rows of peaches. There are 30 trees a row. You do the math.


I'm curious to know what this strange watering system is.

This is what we have after an hour of harvesting.

Fresh fruit tasting. This is the world before Adam eats the forbidden fruit.

This is the world after he eats the fruit.
