A very berry weekend…


This weekend we went ‘P.Y.O-ing’ and headed straight to Elsie’s favourite fruit – the strawberry patch!

We were expecting slim pickings as the farm’s website said bad weather had resulted in a slow crop, but there were loads everywhere!

Our basket full we headed off to get some gooseberries and blackcurrants…


After having such a nice time picking the fruit I then had a sudden panic moment when just about to pay – thinking we’d got a bit too carried away and totally had no idea how much it was going to cost!  But breathed a sigh of relief when we got all these (plus the ones in Elsie’s tummy… ok and mine) for £8, cheaper than the supermarket and much much more fun!

Now what to make with it all, mmmmmm decisions, decisions…
