For outdoor activities that bring you down to earth check out the homey but thorough PickYourOwn website. It lists dozens of major farms across Northern California where you and your grandkids can harvest the cornucopia of crops now ripe for picking including blueberries, corn, tomatoes, plums, peaches, apricots and nectarines. For the Fall you’ll find apple orchards and pumpkin patches where you are welcome to help yourself ( at prices well below even farmers’ markets) plus a guide to corn mazes as well as recipes and canning tips.
