One of the activities which I always wanted to try as a kid is picking strawberries from a strawberry farm. Doggie boy and Tiger girl love eating strawberries. They loves all forms of strawberry from the actual fruit to its jam and ice-cream.
All of us were really thrilled when the opportunity was presented to us personally experience plucking strawberries. There are many such farms in Taiwan and I requested that the we visit one.
We randomly stopped by a strawberry farm to pluck strawberries. What we learned from the farmers that we need to use scissors to cut off the strawberries with the stem intact. This prevents the plant from bruising and keeps it in prime condition.
It was extremely hot that day so we didn’t spend much time picking strawberries. Even though there wasn’t really a limit on the amount of strawberries we could pluck I gave the kids a quota.
While selecting the strawberries to pluck I came across quite a few bees buzzing around the flowers. I manage to capture this shot of a bee who rested for a few seconds on a flower.
