PYO

Hello

Thanks for popping in.

At last the local pick-your-own farm is open again. It's been a long winter without it.  Of course, there are only a few things ready for picking at the moment but you can see that everything is on its way.







In truth, I don't visit purely for the produce. It is a place of calm, open skies, nature, a place where you can Be and get a strawberry as well.

So glad to see you again farm.

  1. We used to have a PYO for strawberries and raspberries but sadly it closed some years ago. My children used to love going picking and eating the odd few as well;). B x

    1. I'm making the most of ours as the Council has bought the farm and will be building sports facilities on it in a few years time. Such a shame x

  2. Ooh, P and I were only just talking about PYO the other day, as we haven't been for years. Your post has made my mind up to go. Those strawberries look wonderful, and so tasty when they're warm from the sun. Yum!

    1. I hope by now you have enjoyed picking a few strawberries yourself although it's been so rainy. x

  3. Your post has reminded me of the smell of the strawberries in the field and the heat of the sun on your back as you bend to pick the fruit and then waiting to have the punnets weighed afterwards. Lovely to imagine on a rainy day like today:)

    1. That sounds very poetic, it conjures up all the old summer days of childhood. :-)

  4. This pick-your-own farm is delightful. I'd love to visit one of these sometime. The strawberries look wonderful. I used to work on a farm one summer when I was a young girl, so to see this farm put a smile on my face.

    1. Everything tastes so much better when you pick it yourself. :-)
