DRAT!
I just realized a flaw in my Sunday plans.

Since Seth was supposed to be working on Sunday, I had suggested to Julian's grandfather that it would be a good day to visit Julian. Which means we *can't* go strawberry picking. :( Bleh. *sniff* We can't just leave Julian with his grandfather and go either, because we'll be gone for too long if we do that. He isn't, well, he's not the type to feed Julian lunch and put him down for a nap or (*gasp*) change diapers. He loves playing with Julian, but those other things are just not things he's used to doing, so he hasn't really learned to do them.

ARGH!

Maybe I'll go by myself.

Of course, that would mean that Seth was stuck alone with Julian some of the time that I'm gone. Argh.

Hmmm.... have_inner_lady, are there any strawberry picking opportunities out your direction on Monday?

I think I need a strawberry icon. I'm running out of icon space.

I'm not aware of any. I wasn't even aware that strawberries were in season yet; in fact, I am rather sure they aren't (unless they're being grown in a greenhouse).

I have a friend a bit north of here who grows many types of berries (not organically though), and would probably be delighted to welcome us all to come pick, but it's still too early for them. Maybe next month.

Does this mean Monday's no good? That's okay... the following weekend isn't good for us, but the second weekend in June (and any weekend thereafter) is all good.

No, I think Monday is still good, if it's okay for you. Don't know details yet, though.

Strawberries, according to a variety of websites, are best picked late May through June. The strawberry picking season at Baugher's is May 26-June 14. I had always thought of them as a late June/July berry, myself. But apparently I was wrong.

Yes, please come. Do you have my phone number?

My mother-in-law may (MAYBE) come to visit that evening, but I didn't expect you'd want to stay too late (and if you do, we can all hang out together).

For strawberries, I'm surprised. Maybe the low-lands of MD get a jump on us. We often get evening "killing frosts" here until after May 15. Should I call the berry grower to see if he has any?

If not, there are other farm experiences to be had out here.

My dear inner lady and Karen -- we have a farm near here that often does pick-yer-own berries, called Swover Creek Farms. But I don't think the berries are out-and-ripe yet for them or other places in our county. Well, I can at least call and ask them...

*boggles* Oh yeah; I do recall their vines now, but I think they looked like raspberries or some other thorn-vine berry. I'm not sure there were strawberries. I was thinking of Humphrey, I guess you know.

Am I your inner lady?
