strawberry picking...

A morning was spent picking 4 kilos! of delicious local strawberries.
I love doing this with the boys, they are so focused on what they are doing, choosing the most reddest & the biggest (then eating the biggest!).
We sat at the end of the row of strawberry tables for a drink and snack and watched swifts zoom across the newly baled field.
High summer in the UK doesn't get much better than this.
Last night I turned our masses of berries into 12 jars of sticky jam... yum!
Number 5 & 6 ticked off of the list.


  1. Oh this PYO looks good - strawberries growing off the floor! I went to one but they were in fields surrounded by weeds and our legs were lashed and my toddler was throwing a wobbler. Must try again next year!

  2. Oh yum!! Nothing better than toast with butter and homemade strawberry jam.

  3. oh man, that looks like the blissness!
