DaddyHen and I went PYO –Pick Your Own; on Saturday morning; yes it rained but then it’s been raining here in England constantly since beginning of April.
We went to Hewitts Farm– it’s a vast site with lots of lovely fruit and veg. We picked Yellow Chard, Broad Beans, Peas, Strawberries and Raspberries. It was a little wet underfoot but had gone prepared with wellies, coats, and hats, although there was a short shower not long after we arrived it was rather nice to get out into the open air. This past week had been very busy with work and I didn’t get much time to get away from the office.
With all this awful weather we’ve been having some of the fruit was just rotting – people haven’t wanted to get out in the rain to PYO; which is such a shame as the taste of the fruit is just so real; like you remember from years ago before the polytunnel.
In a month or so the apples will be ready – the trees were just laden with fruit.
