Berries Picking

Earlier today was an extremely hot day. It totally felt like being in Malaysia, except the fact that we were surrounded by fields filled with berries. Yes, we went berries picking today.

Because chubby kid could not stand being outdoors in the bright daylight, we had to rush through our berries picking. Thus, I did not take as many photos as I wanted to and the photos were not very good.

At the berries farm, we could see big fields and there were all sorts of berries.

We first went over to check out the blackcurrants but they did not taste very nice. Maybe we picked the not so ripe ones.

Then we went over to the tayberries. Yes, tayberries. It was the first time I had ever heard of such a berry. This is how tayberries look like.

928

There were also lots of gooseberries.

But of course, they did not look anything like a goose. Instead, they looked like green grapes with veins and furry thorns.

We then went over to the raspberries section to check out the raspberries.

Having tried all the berries, we decided that they did not taste as good as we imagined that they would be. Perhaps, it was due to our incompetence in picking ripe and delicious ones. So, we proceeded to the strawberries field.

And we picked to our hearts’ content.

In total, we picked 1kg of strawberries. Hmm...delicious!
