That girl's so sweet, just like her name

It's that time of year again...Strawberry Tour season at Tanaka Farms!!

Every year I anxiously await for the tours to open - it's one of the most fun things to do in SoCal. A tractor ride, fresh veggies, all the strawberries you can eat - what more could you want?

I was glad to avoid the heat this year although in some ways it was worse - it had rained the night before and the mud was in FULL EFFECT. OMG. Shoes were getting stuck in the mud, people were falling down, it was chaos. Thank goodess I wore crappy shoes.

The previous rain sure made for a pretty sky.

This year we took a little boy and it was his first time on the farm. He seemed to really like trying the fresh vegetables which was cool to see, and really - what boy doesn't love tractors.

The Kid was thrilled to go into the farm stand and pick out veggies. His favorite veggie: Sugar Snap Peas were in peak season and were sweet and fresh, raw right from the farm.

While the mud was a downer it was still a gorgeous day in Orange County and we got our strawberry haul. A perfect Southern California day.

Strawberry Tours only go through June, so get there quick!

I LOVE the strawberry tours at Tanaka Farms! We did it near the end of the season last year and the berries were fabulous. Definitely need to go again this year - although I wish there was an opportunity to just walk around the farm for a bit...it is so pretty and peaceful.

I definitely have to take CC to Tanaka Farms. I've been meaning to, but still haven't made it yet. Thanks for the reminder! And it was great seeing you IRL on Mother's Day! :)
