Every year since J was little we’ve visited the Pick Your Own fields. In fact looking back at this post from 2015 I honestly cannot believe how much she’s grown! I’ve always been an advocate for PYO and showing J where food actually comes from, rather than the supermarket and she loves picking it and eating it as fast as humanly possible – most time’s it’s gone before we get home
This Wednesday on our day off together J and I visited a local PYO for some strawberries and some fresh podded peas. Fresh peas are my absolute favourite to pick and cook but J loves them raw – I’d love to say that the strawberries are her favourite but hands down podded peas win every time and the punnet was demolished within 2 days of picking it
I sense we’ll be spending most weekends there this year as it’s one of her favourite activities and our garden really isn’t set up for growing your own. Until we move we’ve got a couple of grow bags for some tomatoes and hopefully they’ll provide what she wants for the time being
The hubster doesn’t know this (until he reads this!) but I’m considering signing up for an allotment – J is finally at an age where she wants to be involved and would actually be useful, and we could spend evenings and holidays there when she’s a school girl.
