Summer is here in Los Angeles. It has been bright and sunny for few days now.
Come summer lots of things to do here. And now Sahithi is old enough to pick an activity to do.:).
She has been making plans saying that we should "go here" and "do this".
According to her it is time to do "Some activity". All this talking Thanks to daycare.
strawberry flower and plant
The first summer activity we decided to do was "strawberry picking".
Googled and found a farm where we could do it. Less than 30 miles from where we live.
We drove there and were so totally surprised to see it.
It was not for just strawberry picking but a completely working farm, complete with farm animals and a lot of vegetables being grown with a small shop where they we selling their produce. It was totally awesome. They has a show with all the farm animals explaining to the kids about how useful the animals are on the farm.
And there were sooooo many kids. Sahithi thoroughly enjoyed herself and did a great job of picking ripe strawberries.

I am completely city bought up. Have not been on many farms and the only picking I ever did was in a peanut field.
This was such a novel and beautiful experience. There were rows and rows of strawberry plants. This is the first time I ever saw one and was surprised to see how small they actually are. About 3/4 of a foot. The farm grows all kinds of vegetables. And they let you pick from the farm!!!!!!!!!!!.
Sahithi and I picking Spinach
I saw the plants for carrots, radish, five different kinds of beets, all kinds of lettuce, blue berries for the first time.
I picked spinach, cilantro, radish and beets from the fields. Bought carrots from their shop.
