Local readers, have you discovered Larriland Farm? What a gem! We went to pick apples, but they also currently have spinach, beets, swiss chard, tomatoes, and pumpkins. Huge fields! Stunning views! And only an hour's drive from DC.
Reliving my childhood, I climbed a tree. Brad handed Mason up to me so that he could pick his first apple.
|Yes, here we are, up in a tree, balancing on a limb to pick the perfect apple.|
This Maryland farm is top notch--not at all cheesy or chintzy--offering a huge variety of fruits, vegetables, and flowers to pick for what I thought were reasonable prices. And isn't there something so romantic about picking your own produce? (I am a farmer's daughter. I spent years "picking my own". And there was nothing romantic about it. But time and distance have made my memory rosy.)
I look forward to making other trips to Larriland Farm during strawberry, raspberry, and peach seasons next year. What is your favorite fruit or vegetable to harvest yourself?
