Winchester Harvest Festival

If you read my post 10 Autumnal Days Out In Hampshire 2017 you would have seen me mention Hampshire Harvest Festival that was held in the grounds of Winchester Cathedral this weekend. I don’t know if we’ll manage to go to all of the things on that list, but the Harvest Festival was one that I definitely wanted to tick off. So on Saturday afternoon we set off after lunch to have an afternoon wandering around the stalls. Continue reading “Winchester Harvest Festival”

Strawberry Picking at Pickwell Farm

e9254d42-caf5-402e-8a13-b94731874bdaI didn’t ever quite get around to posting my Summer Bucket List Post, but one thing that I’ve had in my mind that I wanted to do with Darcie was to go strawberry picking. I don’t think I’ve ever been specifically to strawberry fields before but I’ve always thought it seemed like a lovely family outing so wanted to make sure we made it happen and maybe it will even become a family tradition. We live quite close to Pickwell Farm where you can go and pick your own strawberries among many other fruits and vegetables so it seemed like too good of an opportunity to miss.  Continue reading “Strawberry Picking at Pickwell Farm”
