"I hear the breeze among the trees, playing celestial symphonies ... I see the branches downward bent, like keys of some great instrument" (Emerson)
I wish I could remember the quote, or even the author of the quote I once heard - about how children need wilderness ... they need to be able to roam and run and play and touch the earth and explore. Maybe it was John Muir ... not sure. Anyway, I totally believe that. And I believe adults need it to.
Today was a gorgeous day in upstate New York! Mid-70s, a sweet breeze, and at this farm, the fresh smell of earth was like a shot of energy mixed with calm. Vitalizing - that's what it was!
Fresh picked cherries = heaven!
So, just to be clear, we asked: YES - go ahead and eat as you pick. No extra charge :) So little KJ stained her cheeks and enjoyed sun-ripened cherries.
