Little chef is a very willing helper. Lately he has been helping with a lot of fruit picking considering the current season. Today his cousins and him picked a whole bunch of cherries for my mom. So she could make cherry hooch. Yep, everyone work together now to make sure grandma has a good supply of local designer booze.
This variety is Evans cherries and they are a bit tart, but sweet enough to eat off the tree. Of course little chef ate while he worked.
His cousin Jax was rocking some serious little man style while picking.
He shortly tired of him this game and went back to his landscape “site” and hollered at his imaginary “worker guys” . Gotta stay on track and budget imaginary slackers.
Meanwhile little chef decided that picking the cherries at ground level was well… below him.
Seriously? My one year old can climb a ladder unassisted? Don’t think that is one of the “milestones” on the doctor’s check list at the one year check up. I might just petition to have it put on there. Or maybe just a whole separate farm kid list.
Can your child :
– drive at least two pieces of machinery
– eat fruit and veggies straight from the garden
– use a shovel
– make a minimum of 5 different animal noises
– copy farmer John’s bow-leg swagger
– dig a hole 2′ deep and 4′ in diameter
Little chef would pass for sure.
So how does one make grandma’s famous designer hooch? Fill a bottle to the top with fresh cherries, top with vodka, and pour in a half cup of honey. Let is sit for at least 3 months and drink! Boom. You are welcome.
