My friend, Steph, invited us to go strawberry picking with her. I had never done this, and I figured Benji would enjoy it, which he did. The lady at the strawberry farm informed us that alot of the strawberries had been damaged from all the rain. It has been raining alot, and some parts of Ontario even had flooding. We didn't get flooded, thank God, just alot of rain. So, they gave us about four rows for us to go hunting for good strawberries. She was right, ALOT of them were damaged. but we did manage to find a few good ones. We couldn't find any big strawberries just little ones. I'm not sure if it was because of the rain, but man were they juicy!
Benjamin got a hold of the strawberry-picking concept, fairly quick. He was picking them and putting them in the bucket all by himself. At first he didn't want to eat any of them. (You get to eat as much as you want for free) Once he got comfortable in biting one and all the juices began to flow, he was hooked!! He ate a bunch of them, and so did I. hehe. We ended up paying about $4 for the bucket of strawberries. (pictured below) I would say that's an excellent deal!
Overall it was fun, and a great adventure for Mr. Benny!
