Snapshots from England: Strawberry Picking

I’m pretty excited I was finally able to join everyone else in strawberry picking (and eating)!

Last weekend we were able to go strawberry picking…the strawberry season had a late start due to the especially soggy weather.

A cloudy summer day for strawberry picking but no rain! :)

The plants were loaded with strawberries!

Working hard to pick as many ripe berries as possible…and trying to stay warm! :)

These tiny flowers were growing amongst the rows.

And an update on the salad greens I’m growing on my balcony

A photo of the greensThey’re doing well…a bit overgrown and not very hearty, but we did manage to harvest enough lettuce to put on our tacos last weekend.

Hope you’re doing well and getting ready to celebrate the 4th (if you live in the USA) and enjoying your summer!

ps…In case you’d like to see, here are some more snapshots I’ve taken in England…late April edition and red, white and blue Jubilee edition.

    Being in a heatwave, it’s slightly odd to see you all bundled up! That strawberry patch looks too cute. hope you guys had a blast. I finally have a raised garden (!!) but haven’t harvested anything yet. But the herbs it in have shot up enough to start plucking, so that’s exciting. I can’t imagine what’s better than cooking with fresh herbs! As always, love seeing your updates in England!

    Those berries are beautiful. Wishing I could feel that cool weather, we’re in a major heat wave!
