Yesterday I woke up and told the kids we were going to be farmers for a few hours and actually pick our own vegetables. They were kinda confused at first, but as soon as we started picking vegetables at the you-pick-it-farm in Palmer, they were loving being "farmers." I have heard of this place but thought it was more of a farmers market. All of us had a ton of fun getting dirty, picking the vegetables, and learning what certain vegetable plants look like. It's embarrassing to admit, but I didn't know what a broccoli plant looked like or many other vegetables. I don't even know what to do w/ most of the vegetables either like: kohlrabi, bok choi, or even rhubarb. Can you tell I was born and raised in Southern California? So if you have any ways you cook some of those vegetables please write a comment. We did pick the vegetables we know and love: broccoli, peas, potatoes, onion, and carrots. We'll definitely go back in Sept. and then next summer for sure. On the way home we quickly stopped by a reindeer farm as well and took a few pixs.
