Fruit and vegetable picking near London

Fruit and vegetable picking near London

This was my 2nd fruit picking session in the UK. I think I had been to pick fruits in Slough in the summer of 2011 when my Father was here. This time, in the summer of 2012, my brother in law's in-laws were here.
One major difference between these 2 fruit picking session was that the 2012 on also had vegetables that could be picked !
The farm where we went in the summer of 2012 was called Crockford bridge farm. The overall area of the farm was a lot more than the one in Slough. Moreover it seemed very happening and has many different shops in the vicinity. There was plenty of parking space. The procedure was simple. All one had to do was to pick up baskets, pick fruits / vegetables in different baskets and come back to the place where they weighed them and the payment was done. As far as I remember the following fruits and vegetables were available : Courgettes, Strawberries, raspberries, black berries, black currant, spinach, carrots, beet root, green peas, Rhubarb (don't remember seeing) and broad beans (don't remember seeing). Unlike the Slough farm we didn't see any apples and damsons.
The strawberry farm was a treasure of big and juicy strawberries ! We picked loads of them. They were the best strawberries I've ever had. My wife picked up a peculiar strawberry which looked like a butterfly. It was just amazing. I wish I could preserve it. I still have a picture of it here. The green peas were so sweet. My wife added loads of them in the lamb kheema that she made on the same night. It turned out to be very tasty.
Overall it was great fun. It is a completely different feeling to pick your own fruits !
