It wasn't very sensible to go on the hottest day of the year in full abaya and hijab, but when have I ever let that stop me? The weather was glorious and everything was in bloom, if a few weeks later than usual because of the fact it was still snowing in April.
We went quite late in the day so we were warned that most of the strawberry's had been picked and that there would be more later in the week. Despite this we found lots. If you go early you get the big ripe ones, we had to make do with the little ones, but they were just as tasty.
We usually also come back with lots of peas, but these were not ready yet. The only thing were spinach and a few other veggies and these gooseberries which my family thought looked very suspicious (maybe they don't have them in Pakistan?)
I just love how Little Lady co-ordinates her outfits and hijabs mash'Allah, I thought this was such a pretty outfit for a sunny day
It was nice wondering around in the shade of the orchards too. The fruits were not ripe, but the trees were absolutely laden. Unripe Victoria plums:
The kids had so much fun picking these and competing to get the best ones. We came home hot, tired but resolving to go back on a cooler day when the orchards were in fruit.
