Strawberry Picking

Pick Your Own

One of my absolute favourite things to do in the summer is go strawberry picking! We have this little farm about 5 minutes down the road from us where you can pick strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries and the list goes on! I don’t think we’ve ever had a year when we haven’t been strawberry picking. I remember as a little kid, we used to visit during the school holidays, have some lunch (they have a little cafe there), and play in the playground. So fun!

Strawberry season started a few weeks ago, so I thought it was about time to head down there. We picked our punnet, headed out to the tunnels and started picking. Sometimes, depending on which ones are ripe at the time, you can get some really disgusting strawberries, but these were the best! I wish we’d have gotten a bigger punnet now as they’re almost all gone! I did plan on sharing them with my mum and dad, but they were just too good! We’ll definitely be back though, as I’d love to make some strawberry chia jam!

They also have a little farm shop there too, where they sell local produce. I usually get some local honey for my hayfever but they were all out! They just need to expand to do pumpkins now too haha! I’d love to go pumpkin picking in the autumn – it looks like so much fun! Have you been strawberry picking?

      Blueberry picking sounds like so much fun! I absolutely love blueberries, but we don’t have the right soil around here to grow them, but strawberries are good haha!

    I haven’t been fruit picking since I was little, we used to live near a farm but now in London it’s not so near!

    I love this! I’ve always wanted to go strawberry picking but my parents have an allotment and get loads of strawberries off it so there’s never been much point. It looks like so much fun though!

      That’s pretty amazing though! I’d love to be able to just go to an allotment and pick loads of fruit! Sadly, my strawberry plants in my veg patch produced about 3 berries this year, which all got eaten by bugs! 🙁 Hopefully next year!

    I’d love to go strawberry picking! I haven’t done it since I was a little girl haha. They taste so much better when you hand pick them yourself don’t they!

      Definitely! They’re just so juicy and sweet when they’re still warm from the sunshine!
