Did anyone UK-based hear the thunder yesterday afternoon? At one point it was right overhead us and it was so scary! As soon as it stopped raining we jumped into the car and made our way to Priory Farm for some half-price end of season PYO.
We managed to avoid the rain for a short while but the heavens opened and the husband had to whisk Florence to safety. My sister-in-law, Jen and I remained, hardcore strawberry pickers, fingers whitened from the cold but joyful to have the whole field to ourselves.
I am never sure of the PYO etiquette, is it ok to eat as you go? The field was unmanned and it was the end of the season so I couldn't resist the lure of the strawbs. Did have a belly ache on the way home though.
Jen found the perfect strawberry! And naturally it had to be modeled.
Good summer times indeed!
