The warm weather is continuing and we are trying to squeeze every last bit of enjoyment out of it. Other summer inspired recipes will be on the way but today is just a quick post celebrating the arrival of summer and the strawberry season. Evie and I spent a lovely morning strawberry picking at Hawarden Farm Shop this week. No recipes here: when strawberries are this luscious and sweet the only thing to do is to eat them just as nature intended: a real treat.
Hawarden is my favourite farm shop. They stock a wide variety of produce and it is situated in the beautiful grounds of the Hawarden Estate Farm. We have whiled away many hours here; Evie watching the piggies rolling in the mud from the top of the fort play area slide and chasing the free-range chickens that have ventured inside its walls. The village of Hawarden is a lovely place to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon. The woods that surround the old castle are perfect for a gentle stroll and the Estate also owns The Glynne Arms pub which serves a mean Sunday lunch. Today, there are a number of events in the village including a charity cricket match with cream teas and an antique and vintage market at the pub. For more details of the events visit the Hawarden Farm Shop website. I might see you there. Enjoy the sunshine! Victoria x
