My parents used to take me to Pick-Your-Own farms when I was about the same age as Lil Sis is now. I remember walking along, eating a lot more strawberries than I put in my basket, thinking this was just the BEST PLACE EVER!
There’s a farm just up the road from us we love to take the girls to now; they grow the usual PYO standards – raspberries, gooseberries, blueberries, and strawberries – and recently added a cute outdoor cafe in a yurt, so it’s always a nice day out.
This pic was taken on the day that temps soared to 30+ degrees throughout most of the UK, so we were absolutely roasting as we wandered through the strawberry fields strawberry fields picking the biggest, juiciest ones we could find. I had planned to make jam with the berries, but they were so delicious we polished them all off for dessert that night.
Must be time for another visit, then…
