This past weekend, our local "pick your own" farm, www.barriehillfarms.com celebrated their 5th annual Strawberry Festival. We decided to go pick some strawberries on Sunday and enjoy the festivities. The morning started off very grey and cloudy, so we waited till later in the afternoon to see if it would improve.

|Fresh picked new potatoes, sweet peas and snow peas for sale.
|Fresh spinach and asparagus for sale too!
|We had to wait a while for this strawberry shortcake, as the organizers had run out of cake, but Annabel didn't want to go home without eating it. So, we waited, and it was definitely worth the wait!
|This is what we purchased at the farm on Sunday - fresh picked strawberries, new potatoes, and sweet peas!
The weather did improve and we had a fun afternoon at the farm! I feel so lucky to live within a few minutes of this wonderful farm that provides such a large assortment of fresh-picked produce from May to September!
|Sunday's dinner - grilled pork, local new potatoes and sweet peas.
|And don't forget dessert! Our vanilla cupcakes, cut in bite-size pieces, vanilla ice cream, and sliced strawberries soaked in their own sugar syrup. So simple, yet so delicious!
I will end this post with the beautiful backyard sunset I captured on Sunday evening. Sorry for the rather long post. I just had so many pictures I wanted to share with you. I hope you are enjoying your Wednesday. It is rather chilly and blustery here in Barrie. Hoping it's warm and sunny where you are! Thank you for stopping by. I so enjoy having you. Happy Wednesday! xo
