Shut your pie hole

We all went to Boxx Berry Farm in Ferndale today. It was raspberry festival time and it was alot of fun.

The best part was the raspberry sundaes. Their raspberry syrup with ice cream from Edaleen Dairy is delicious. The Farm also had barrel rides for kiddies, a tractor ride through the farm (ate carrots just pulled from the ground thanks to Mike), face painting and animal balloons. What family with young children could ask for more?

We bought half a flat of raspberries and they were gone by the next evening. My partner kept reminding us the raspberries only last one or two days. So, of course, the four of us listened and polished them off.

Boxx Berry Farms has a Market store where they sell produce and pies. I bought some Ranier cherries (almost gone) and vegetables. My partner bought some potatoes and onions and pie. Which brings me to the blog title. He bought a strawberry rhubarb pie from Barb’s Pies & Pastries. Strawberry rhubarb is my favorite and I was so looking forward to a slice for lunch. We had bought her pies at the farm last year and were very satisfied. This time it was good, but different. My ten year old son said the crust was too hard and the filling jelly (he’s the official pie maker for my pie hole). Not what we remembered it to be. This, however, didn’t stop us from eating it…

The family went on the tractor ride with Farmer Mike. We got to listen to his great spiel (his word) about the farm and ate some fresh picked carrots (he also picked an onion along the way). I told Mike the farm should have an onion festival to go along with the strawberry and corn (I love onions as much as cabbage). He seemed to like the idea and gave me the onion (walla walla). We had fried onion rings that night.

Mike said I could be a twin for Karol at Joe’s Garden. I’ll have to take another look. She gives us fresh picked carrots, too.
