At the weekend I finally got to visit a sunflower field which is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time. My friend Francis and I went to Cairnie Fruit Farm in Cupar after seeing you could pick your own sunflowers there. It wasn’t quite Tuscany- the sunflowers were still really small. I guess we were a bit early for them but we still managed to find some pretty ones (then mine died before I got home, damnit).
After we picked the sunflowers I decided I also wanted to pick some berries, ’cause why not. Picking your own fruit from a farm is so much cooler than going to Tesco. I was hoping to get some gooseberries as I haven’t had any since I was a kid but sadly they are just going out of season and were all rotten. We walked around the raspberry bushes and tasted 1 or 16 then I got a little basket to fill up with strawberries which are my favourite. As I was walking around the patch I thought about how cool it would be to have my own fruit farm. Imagine going to get dinner every night and just eating the garden. Goals.
Next time I go searching for sunflowers I think I’ll hold off a bit until later in the year when they’re fully grown. But it was a nice little day out and not something you get to do every day so it was definitely a lot of fun. Plus, strawberries.
