Aunt Kristanne thought the cousins would enjoy a visit to the only organic farm left in Orange county, Tanaka Gardens. Watermelon season, Pumpkin Patch and Christmas Tree events are very popular here, but strawberries and spring? Lets see...

It was hot and our boys, Theo, Austin and Owen don't look overly enthused as they waited for the farm wagon.

Kristanne was undaunted and we loaded into the wagon.

This scarecrow, one of many, was a hit. The fields so beautiful, one could consider them growing art in action.

Carrots, snap peas and spinach freshly picked and handed to them for tasting by the tractor driver were the best any of us had ever tasted. They were a little dubious about raw bok choy and fresh maui onion sets, though but were willing to try anything at this point.

Strawberries were a definite hit. Each of us were allowed to pick a one pound plastic container full of strawberries to bring home and to eat all we wanted while in the field. Yup! They loved it.  And, so did the adults.  Later in the day, we cooled off in the pool.
