Strawberry Fields Forever!!

The sweltering heat on Saturday set myself and the youngest thinking about Strawberries.

As luck would have it we live about 3 miles away from the wonderful Claremont Farm. They do ‘pick your own’ fruit and so we went hunting.

Strictly speaking,  I am opposed to child labour, however when it comes to filling my fridge with the best strawberries that the Wirral has to offer, then I relax my standards.

The strawberries were out in abundance, all plump and juicy!

This one made the grade and was promptly added to my basket.

Claremont Farm do the whole experience so well, they even include a complementary tractor ride to the further fields.

We didn’t partake this time, apparently 12 is too old.

Look at these beauties! We filled two small baskets, which filled a large colander and they cost less than £3.50 which I think is a bargain!

It would have been rude not to make a Strawberry cake, wouldn’t it?

Have a lovely day!

  1. Nothing better than eating strawberries you’ve picked yourself! We have a few strawberry plants in the garden and everyday the kids will pick a few to eat. It’s the highlight of their day I think! 😀

    And might I just add…. that strawberry cake looks amazing! I have to make one for M’s 4th birthday next week and very much doubt it will look as good as yours! Xxx
