One of the many privileges we get from being able to visit family in the UK during the summer is being able to go to the pick-your-own fruit farms. We don’t get that opportunity here in the city.
Depending on what time of the month we visit we might be able to pick anything from corn on the cob to cherries or of course strawberries.
Last year, at the farm we usually go to, there was a newspaper cutting on the wall reporting that another PYO farm in the area was forced to close due to greedy customers eating a quarter of their strawberry crops. Being able to eat as you pick is part of the fun but the last thing I want to do is put someone out of business. Needless to say, I decided to not eat while I picked and save it for when I finished.
Every little counts. 😉
