A Day in the Strawberry Fields with my JORD

In the Summer there is nothing we love more than a day in the Strawberry fields and last week we took our first trip of the year to our local ‘Pick Your Own’ Farm. I have recently been lucky enough to receive a beautifully unique watch from JORD Wood Watches and I just had to bring it along for the day.

It feels like this watch was made to be worn in the great outdoors and it couldn’t have fitted in more perfectly amongst the luscious green grass, dainty flowers and scrumptious strawberries.

Lucky for us, we have Pip’s Pick Your Own less than ten minutes down the road. And when it says pick your own, it literally means pick your own of pretty much any fruit and vegetable you can think of. This time we were there just for the strawberries, because, lets be honest, is there anything nicer than a fresh juicy strawberry in the middle of a heatwave?

Last year we took the girls strawberry picking for the very first time, Allana was too little to remember but Willow couldn’t have been more excited to get out into the fields again. It didn’t take long for Allana to understand the aim of the game and get stuck into the strawberry picking too, although I have a funny feeling she may have eaten more than she actually placed in her basket…

The farm is also home to a few animals, both girls and I were pretty taken by the little adorable fluffy bunnies and guinea pigs. I think we could’ve happily spent our whole afternoon sitting in the sunshine, watching the animals and eating our strawberries.

I don’t think it will be long before we head over to the farm again, I’ve already got a little list of different fruit and vegetables I’d like to pick over the next couple of months. What are your favourite fruit and vegetables? Can you recommend anything unusual that just has to be tried?

Pop over here to check out my watch from the Fieldcrest series as well as all their other stunning wood watches.

I have teamed up with JORD Wood Watches so you can win a $100 gift card to put towards your very own unique watch. Everybody who enters will receive a $25.00 gift card too which is pretty wonderful!

The competition is open until 9th July 2017, just click here to enter.

    What a lovely way to spend a summer’s day. We’ve never been fruit picking but it looks like fun. (Imagine as a job it’s a lot harder!)

    This sounds like a lovely pick your own! I love picking my own plums, they taste so much better freshly picked! #bigpinklink

    What a lovely day out! Having animals there too, makes it extra fun for the children-that’s a great idea. We haven’t done anything like this with the boys, but we should, they’d love it! It would encourage more fruit into them too…!
    Gorgeous pictures of you all, and the watch as well!
    Thanks for being a fab cohost! X
