Have you ever seen a cherry tree? With cherries growing on it? Have you ever picked them? I hadn’t. My kids have been tomato picking and strawberry picking. They know that fruit grows on trees and veggies grow in a garden, in the ground. But to see this and experience picking your food is something that I think is really important for little minds.
I was so excited when we were driving to Glacier and we passed so many cherry farms. I begged Mark to stop so that we could go cherry picking. We found a U-Pick and picked a 5lb bucket of cherries for $5! It was fun and delicious.
