Last Sunday we were blessed with the most beautiful sunny day. Days this lovely at the end of October are a real treat and we decided to make the most of it by taking a trip to Garson’s Farm in Esher for a bit of fruit and veg picking. I love taking the girls out fruit picking, we always have loads of fun and it’s nice to go home and eat all the lovely things we gathered.
Despite it being late in the year there was plenty of choice we started with apples and moved on the various vegetables.
I love weird and rude veg, so had to include some pictures of these quirky carrots! One of them made it into a pie I made and another is now some carrot cupcakes!
With Halloween just around the corner, the girls were really excited to choose a couple of pumpkins we’re planning on carving them tomorrow, so look out for pictures soon.
After the pumpkins we got completely lost picking corn!
The highlight of fruit picking is always the strawberries and we took so many home with us and they tasted delicious.
After the strawberries it was on to the raspberries, which were really ripe and easy for the kids to pick.
I’d really recommend this as a great way to spend the day together and a great alternative to getting your veg from the supermarket. We bought absolutely loads and it was about the same price as we would usually spend. The pick your own fields are still open, so it would be a great half term outing.
What I Wore: I love creating casual looks with my vintage dresses. This 60s shift was a bargain car boot sale buy and I paired it with some blue tights and comfy converse, perfect for a day out with the little ones.
