Adventures in Cherry Picking

This weekend we once again went on a roadtrip to Klondyke Cherry Farm to pick our weight in cherries for the festive season! If you haven't gone before, I can definitely recommend it - we've been going since I was a child. It was about a 2 hour drive from Cape Town to the farm, so make a day out of it and pack a picnic lunch! You can find out more details (incl costs) over here. Between my parents and myself, we got about 7 kg of cherries, and my two friends picked about that much between themselves as well - it's definitely going to be a cherry-flavoured Christmas! Here are a few snapshots from our day out.

Rocky outcrops and Cape fold mountains

Cherry trees almost unable to support the weight of their abundant fruit

Sun + cherries + fresh air = one happy cherry picker

The first half of our haul!
