Summer strawberry picking in the sun

The sun’s been beating down here today, so after school we decided to make the most of it and head off to the local pick your own strawberry fields for some ripe, juicy fruit.

What better way to enjoy one of summer’s most tastiest fruits than fresh from the plant?!

Armed with an empty punnet each, the fun mission of the afternoon was to sit in the middle of the rows and fill them up.

Wending our way through the rows of strawberries, we decided our best plan of action was to get into the thick of it and try picking from the back first as we figured all the juiciest ones would have disappeared from the beginning as that’s where everyone starts picking from.

Our initial methodical plan of action worked, and on hitting the middle of the rows, we found nestled underneath the leaves lots of huge, fat untouched strawberries.



The two small people took great delight in checking each fruit for their beautiful red colour, and size, and soon filled their punnets.

We’ve ended up with a great afternoon out, and two overflowing punnets of fresh strawberries.

Guess what we’ve been eating for dessert today?

I suppose we’d better get baking strawberry themed things this weekend.

Either that or just eat them as they are – they won’t last long either way in this house!

    Or jam? Fruit picking’s great fun with kids, isn’t it? I’d love it if you’d like to join in with my new Family Days Linky over on Mums do travel. It’s all about sharing inspiration for days out with children.

    They look gorgeous, I’d forgotten what a fun activity strawberry picking can be with the children – you’ve inspired me! Thanks for sharing with Country Kids.

      It’s a fun, cheap day out with lots of yummy strawberries to eat at the end of it – bonus! 🙂
      Just like to say they don’t just look delicious, they actually are – they’re really juicy, sweet and succulent! I’ve been eating them all day! 😀

    Oh yes! Great minds! I think my children would opt to go every week.
