Cherry picking in the summertime
I thought this would be a different post to include on my fashion blog, more of a lifestyle type of post for a change. When Adam and I were shooting some photos a couple of weekends ago in the fields, we came across a cherry tree that we never knew was even there. I think the cherries only appear on it for a few weeks of the year, so it’s no wonder we hadn’t spotted them before when we were there.
Cherries are one of my favourite fruits, I can literally eat them by the bucket load if I wanted to, so picking them naturally and actually eating cherries directly from the tree is as organic as it comes and much less expensive! We washed them before eating them and made sure to only pick the ripe ones which didn’t look damaged in any way too. We ended up with loads of cherries to eat and shared them around with family.
I love trying to eat as healthy as I possibly can and picking fruit is as good as it gets. With that in mind though I have always wanted my own vegetable patch so I could grow and eat my own carrots, potatoes and other vegetables etc and enjoy them completely organic and fresh. Do any of you grow your own fruits or vegetables?
It actually takes me back to being a child when I picked an apple from a tree on a country walk with my dad. That apple was literally the most delicious apple I had ever eaten and still is to date. It had a sweetness to it that was mixed with elements of sour, it was perfect! If I only had a fruit tree in the garden! I hope you like my cherry picking photos and if you see a cherry tree yourself, it’s definitely worth it as long as they are healthy cherries, so pick wisely!
For those of you who are also interested in my outfit that I have on here, I was wearing a green plaid boyfriend shirt from GAP and my Levi’s vintage denim shorts. You can shop similar shirts here and here and pick up my shorts here.
