I like ur icon.

"My spoon is too big!"

I never understood the appeal of picking your own fruit until I found out that you only pay for the stuff you take out. So you can eat like a cartfull of strawberries before you even leave. It's also a lot of fun to throw rotten fruit at your sibling and try to blame it on gravity.

Word to the wise, don't eat a cartfull of strawberries. It will make you very very sick.

I won't say that it's not fun, just that I think it's kind of odd that it's been relegated to an "activity" for most people.

The crazy thing about eating what you can while you're on site is that unless you're at one of the rare farms that doesn't use pesticides or chemical fertilizers, you're kind of asking to be sick if you don't wash the fruit. It's just a little scary that the notion of eating fruit from the tree is itself a romantic notion.

Of course, I still do it, and I'm honestly surprised I didn't get sick from the cartload of apples I ate while I was there
