There is something so satisfactory about picking your own fruit off the vine or branch. It's a connection to the earth that makes you thankful for every raindrop and sunbeam that touches that fuzzy skin of a peach.
Recently I discovered this website that highlights Pick Your Own farms. Take a look at the map, find a farm close to you and spend an afternoon picking fruits and vegetables for your table. It's a simple way to connect with Mother Nature this August.
