As the weather has been so glorious this past week here in the UK, I’ve been leaving my desk at every opportunity I’ve had and decided to make the most of it. When Poppy & Sean said they were thinking of going to a Pick Your Own farm, I was completely sold (as were Alfie and Mark) and we all made an afternoon of it. The last time I went strawberry picking was 2011 (I did a blog post, which you can read HERE – How have 5 years passed since this? It felt like yesterday) I went with my Mum and I remember the particular place we went was very small and the crop was coming to an end. The place we went surpassed anything I was expecting. It was Roundstone Farm in Worthing, only a 25-minute drive from Brighton and it was enormous. You could practically pick anything in the supermarket fruit and veg section to take home.
It was as easy as picking up your green punnet and meandering through the fields between 20ft hedgerows. The day was perfect and we casually strolled along, picking fruit and chit chatting away. It was warm and the sun peeped out from behind the clouds every now and then without it being too sweltering. We even stopped half way through for a much-needed ice cream. Not going to lie, trying to resist eating my entire punnet whilst we were there was quite the struggle and I’m surprised I didn’t get any berry stains on my white dress.
If you’re looking for something to do on these rare but very beautiful summer days, I’d highly recommend searching for a P.Y.O farm near you and gathering up your friends or family for an afternoon of fruit and fun!
