At the Farm

Hello

Thanks for popping in.

It's been a busy few weeks and the weather has been up and down, so it's only this week that I've been able to get back to the Pick Your Own Farm after the Winter closure to see how the produce is getting along, in particular the strawberries.  With the tennis at Queens on at the moment, it's only 2 weeks until Wimbledon when all strawberries need to be whisked into action!


There are 3 varieties of strawberry on the go, Christine, Symphony and Elan.  Broad beans are in profusion, carrots, beetroot, rhubarb are ready with the odd couple of red raspberries showing that they will be ready soon too.





Thanks Farm, great to see you again.

Cheerio

    1. I'm making the most of our farm as in a couple of years it will be turned into a leisure centre.

    1. Yes it's wonderful to have so much choice and even seeing them growing in the fields is a real tonic. 😊

  4. Strawberries are the thing I miss most about our allotment. I shall have to visit a PYO farm this year.

    1. They seem to taste so much better when you pick them yourself even though the supermarkets stock local ones too.

    1. Very lucky indeed, I shall miss it when it's turned into a leisure centre in a couple of years time. x

  6. Pick you own time has come around again. You got some lovely fresh produce. As far as I know we don't have any PYO farms near where we live, only the farm shops and markets.

    1. I expect you can get some lovely fresh produce at the markets but I find the whole experience of going to the farm and picking them adds to the flavour!
