This is problematic because while they’ve had fun with it in the past, I’ve liked the fact that it’s WAY cheaper than buying berries at the store. Like 25% of the cost.
Now, the conundrum. We want the berries. This year we’ll have no production of our own, and we go through quite a few berries in general. Like anywhere from 5-10 lbs a month.
So the goal was to stock up on as much of a years supply as possible.
But the kids don’t want to go. Not just a little bit not want to go, but definitely don’t want to go.
Option B, though, is to go and get the pre-picked flats that the farm sells. A bit more expensive, but stil cheaper than the store. They have retail locations all around the area, much closer than their farm.
If the kids were still interested, then we’d absolutely head out there. But instead, we’ll save on gas, and save on kid frustration and boredom.
Overall, it’s a bit of a bummer that the fun activity isn’t much fun anymore. Guess the kids are growing up.
On a side note, I’ve heard that folks glaze strawberries with water to freeze them … it’s supposed to help them store longer … anyone know anything about that?
