Yesterday we went back to the 'Pick your own' farm to stock up on more strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.  We've had a fair bit of rain around these parts in the last week, although yesterday afternoon was wall to wall sunshine.  However, I learnt an important lesson.  Never assume that what looks like a muddy patch of grass is not a 6" hole full of water.  Let's just say that I did my fruit picking with one blue trainer and one muddy brown one, and as I walked up and down the rows it went 'step, squelch, step squelch ....'  Made me think of the Vicar of Dibley sketch where Dawn French jumps in a puddle

Think of me when you reach 1m 30 .....
Whilst picking raspberries, I overheard a conversation between members of a family in the next row.
"Mum, Ollie's eating the pink things"
"That's ok Alfie, why don't you try one?"
Pause
"It tastes like waspbewwy yoghurt"
"What do you think makes your yoghurt taste like that?"
"The pink?"
Guess sometimes we take for granted that kids understand about where flavours come from!

Lol! Vicar of Dibley is what I thought and then I scrolled down and saw you had thought of it too! It's one of the funniest bits of TV I've ever seen.

It still sounds like a great day out and I'm still trying to persuade our lot to come pyo-ing with me here

Looks like we all had the same thought ~ I love that scene in VoD (but, then again, I'm also in love with Richard Armitage!)

I can visualize you squelching along picking fruit.

The VoD is one of the funniest shows I have ever seen, loved that epsiode and I am one to agree with Ruth! ;-)

I don't need to watch the clip - I know exactly which scene you mean and I'm giggling away! (I shall watch the clip anyway though, it bears any number of re-views!)

I have never, ever done a PYO.... Despite growing up in farming country!! I feel suitably ashamed, and will look out for one locally asap xx
