Picky-picky head, go buy new head

When LilSprinkles called me up and asked me to go watermelon picking, I jumped at the chance. I had taken the kids on the strawberry picking tour in the spring and it was fabulous. I just wasn't quite sure how we'd 'pick' them.

The tour was similar to the strawberry one, though I have to say - nothing beats a farm in the Spring. The 'tasting' choices were limited, there didn't seem to be as much stuff growing during the Summer. The cool thing about this time though - at the picking stop, they had tents set up for us to cover us from the heat, and they chopped up veggies and fruits for us to try in the tent.

The Baby - not really a fan of veggies. Maybe I need to take him to tour a slaughterhouse so that he can just eat pork and beef all day. Whatever - most of the free veggies he tossed after one bite. The self-proclaimed-vegetarian-Kid on the other hand, was loving the free cucumber tasting. The Baby preferred to 'put them on his eyes like Mommy' does to relax...

When it came time to 'pick' the only picking was from a big 'ol pile on the ground. They didn't want a billion kids to go stomping their fields getting hernias lifting up melons. Rightly so. So the excitement of picking off the vine that we got from the strawberry, not so much this time. Luckily the Baby does happen to love melon, so now he has two of his own to get his fill. He says the Yellow Watermelon tastes the best.Perhaps we'll go back for pumpkin picking and tasting in the fall. Except I'll probably have to bring a ham sandwich for the Baby.

reason 2 to not take baby on a slaughterhouse tour: his ear accidentally coming off and becoming a hotdog or two.

they have a bacon plant nearby where I was told they give away bacon at the end of the tour. my boss will not authorize a field trip.
