One of our friends from college just started up a u-pick flower field with her hubs in Nampa. Since two of my favorite things about summer are fresh fruit and fresh flowers, I was super stoked. I LOVE u-pick places. Our parents used to take us to pick cherries and apples and all sorts of good things in Fruitland when we were growing up and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE it. I made my hubbers go get strawberries with me last summer and I am sure he can confirm that I am slightly obsessed with it. I almost threw elbows at kids to get out there first. I didn’t want them getting all of the berries. Right, back to flowers. We are dog sitting the most amazing dog this weekend but when one dog wakes up, both dogs wake up. So, I was up since 4:30 this AM and by 8 was ready go to. I pretended to sleep in between. It’s a short drive out to their house just off the freeway in Nampa. Honor system so you just go up, fill a bucket and pay $10. I got 2 buckets so for $20 I have a TON of flowers. Mostly zinnias and sunflowers. It’s so cool. Would definitely be fun for a family to do (especially thinking of Trish from Bella Grano and Lindsay from Banter). This is totally up your alley. So rad!
PS, aren’t mason jars the GREATEST vases?
