Strawberry picking

Strawberry picking

Redcurrant picking

Raspberry picking

Last weekend myself & Scott headed over to Kenyon Hall Farm to big the reddest, juiciest strawberries you have ever seen. They are so much tastier than the supermarket strawberries! We also picked up some redcurrants that I've used for red onion & red currant relish which is deeeeelicious with any cheese. It's my birthday at the weekend so I'm going to make a strawberries & cream cheesecake from the new hummingbird bakery book because it looks SO delicious, when I first got the book I said 'I NEED to make that in the summer!'. I am also cursed with the curse of always making my own birthday cake. I can't complain though, because I am rather fussy when it comes to cake and would rather make my own. Especially strawberries & cream cheesecake with locally picked strawberries! Yum.
