Strawberry Fields Forever

When the forecast is showers, it's difficult to know where to go for a day out! This weekend we have had our nieces and nephew to stay. I figured if we were going to go out in the rain and mud, we may as well go out for something we can eat! So a trip to Gorst Hill Farm seemed the perfect destination.

Pick your own fruit!
Neither myself, David nor the kids (Ellen, Maria and Sam) had been before, so this was a brand new experience for us all.
We chose to pick strawberries, raspberries and gooseberries. I think strawberries were our favourite as we picked far more of those!
The kids couldn't wait to get the punnets weighed so we could get home to wash the fruit and introduce it to ice cream.
It may have rained a little and we may have had to tackle muddy pathways, but we had a fun time and something far more satisfying than a fridge magnet to take home as a souvenir - even if it didn't last long!
