In summer I often feel like Homer Simpson, with so many episodes beginning with my family out on some cheesy local family activity. Today we went to the Afton Apple Orchard to pick fresh strawberries. Fresh picked strawberries taste much better than grocery store strawberries: they are much juicier and softer, with a sweet-sour taste. At Afton Apple the strawberries you pick cost $1.80 per pound (we ended up with about 14 pounds today, half for eating fresh and half for freezing). They're really tasty, and it's a rather fun activity to take kids out to a strawberry field and pick them.
