lovely weather, lovely boys, perfectly lovely sweet and juicy strawberries

How lucky we are to live near Over Farm but how criminal that yesterdays visit to their Pick Your Own strawberry field is my first in 14 years of living in Gloucester, despite being frequent visitors to the animal pens. PYO at Over Farm is now set to become an annual family tradition, especially as we’ve not grown our own fruit this year. We’ve had poor pickings from our strawberry bed at the allotment the last few years thanks to hungry slugs, choking nettles and more rain than sun. Pure genius in action at Over Farm creating waist high strawberry beds for total picking comfort and slime free strawberries. 12-7-13 - Over PYO 4B
I always presumed PYO meant inflated prices but it’s very reasonable at £4.50/kg. And the lovely check out staff didn’t bat an eyelid as a ruby red lipped, t-shirt stained little boy handed in his punnet for weighing.12-7-13 - Over PYO_E and Charlie* 4B

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
