Family Days Out: Apple Picking Chronicles

Updated: Sep 30

Hello Autumn


We are Cara,CoCo And Mummy Adventures, today we are on an apple picking adventure, but this time it's in the garden!


Not only is apple picking brilliant for eating but for baking. I mean it's sage to say, you can turn most fruits into a crumble and add a delicious twist to!


And it's all in good timing as Christmas is soon approaching (Hehe)

Eeeeeks, Autumn is officially here & I cannot contain the excitement!


Another one on the bucket list (Kind of)


There are so many things you can do when it comes to fruit picking it's unreal, but today, we will take one step forward and begin in the garden.

Between adventures, homeschooling, amazing classes and life..


“The Ultimate Autumn Family Bucket List” is in full swing & has kept these two butterflies very busy.

No room for boredom on my watch I say!


The joy of picking apples & other fruits daily in the garden has been our summer treat & we are honestly very grateful!




This year our garden blessed us, we reaped a harvest we did not sow.


Which has now given us green fingers and that's a very good thing indeed.


We explored sowing seedlings at the beginning of lockdown & both kids, CoCo included absolutely loved it.
