The start of Pick Your Own Strawberry seasons marks the start of summer ... right? Right?
So it wasn't the blisteringly scolding summer day I seem to remember from my childhood, but the start of Strawberry picking season at Claremont Farm is definitely still a seasonal flag in the ground.
We took a lunch break from our screens to pull our dessert from the ground, something that's innately and instinctively pleasing to just about everyone, I reckon.
The fields have just been opened to the public, so we had a good pick of the crop, soon the plants will be pillaged of their juicy goodness by hungry locals - and who can blame 'em. They're some cracking strawberries.
