Day Out - Pick Your Own
We spend Sunday morning at Parkside farm, a Pick-Your-Own fruit and veg farm about 20 minutes drive from our flat. It was supposed to be a clear day with scattered showers but the rain stayed away long enough for us to enjoy the farm.
I was most excited about blackcurrants, specifically to make jam. Blackcurrant is such an under-rated berry which baffles me...it is abundant and cheap but you only find it in Ribena...why? Scott is most excited about the strawberries...he has very specific plan for the fresh strawberries he picked...to be revealed soon
We came away with large punnets of strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrant, blackberries, onions and beetroots. We will definitely be back soon to stock up on squash, beans, tomatoes and sweetcorn.
