It's raining, it's pouring...

October 6, 2017

It's been a beautiful week of intermittent rain, with a full day of rain yesterday. The plants love the rain, and perk up a lot with the cooler weather and the 21mm of the downpour really does a world of difference. We have had pickers enjoying the wet and muddy conditions in the fields, of which some are not as muddy as others. Wednesday saw the most pickers during the week, letting the kids loose and getting them out and about really did wonders for a whole bunch of people this week.

Picking will be open this weekend, come rain or shine. The only time that we will close the fields this weekend, would be if there is lightning, or if we are picked out. Come through this weekend, bring your "Wellies", or go picking barefoot (it's easier than cleaning your shoes), if you wish wear a raincoat, bring an umbrella, but more than likely bring a towel with you to dry off after your picking (we also have hot drinks available if you wish). The cooler weather is much more conducive to enjoyable strawberries than the hot sunny weather.

So, pack in the family - especially the kids, along with umbrellas, raincoats, gumboots and towels (if you wish) for some of the cleanest dirty fun you could have as a family.

See you in the fields this weekend
