Oh!

What a sweet, charming spot for our first night on the road, Dear Reader.

Even though it was hotter than blue blazes, as my mom would say, we had so much fun strolling along this family-run farm and greenhouse.

As RVers, we’re part of something called Harvest Hosts. Basically, for about $60 a year, you can camp at a zillion farm-to-table kinda places all across The US of A. I’m talking breweries, wineries, farms, and the like.

So, McDonald’s Greenhouse was our first!

It was a solid 90 degrees outside, so we had the sights to ourselves. Baby Snap and I bounced on a giant blowup thing for a few minutes, walked through a sandpit, and ran around in the grass like only kids can.

(We then guzzled down water in the shade.)

But mostly, we visited with the sweet animals!

Look at these beauties!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a turkey this close up before. The colors of this big boy’s skin were quite lovely: an indigo and violet I’ve never seen in nature!

As you can see, there were also a handful of goats! We also spotted a calf, and I think one sheep.

So basically, it was SnapDragon Heaven.

Innocent Animal Fix satisfied!

. . . on to the next!

  1. Sounds a good stop! Do you have to do farm work to earn your stay-over or is that really covered by just sixty dollars a year?

    1. Haha, no labor required! The annual fee covers it. Since a lot of the places who host are independently owned, they just suggest that you shop at their store, eat, drink, etc. Which is never a problem for us! 😂

  2. What a great way to start your trip, and this Harvest Host sounds like a great deal. I’m guessing the $60 per year doesn’t include the cost of camping at these sites??

    1. It does! Basically, I think the idea is that by camping for free at their place of business, you’ll be willing to be a patron. I think most Harvest Host sites only let individuals stay for a night or two at a time, and it’s what we RVers call “boon-docking”. (No hook-ups to electricity, water, or sewage.) So it’s a quick stop, and a friendly exchange of services! Pretty neat. 😎
