We also stopped by a Cantonese bakery and picked up some egg custard tarts. I used these as the perfect excuse to try out a "Poetry Tea" inspired by Lucinda at Navigating by Joy, with a Chinese twist. Chinese tea, Cantonese tarts, pipa music and poetry by Li Po. Pea, who loves poetry, especially enjoyed this, and wanted to read a fair few poems. And with enough rock sugar, they enjoyed the tea :)
While Pea spent the day with her paternal grand parents, Hubby, Elle and I spent the day at a fantastic u-pick. With chickens greeting you at your arrival, a young cow and goat freely wandering around the orchards, and a pond with fish that jump out of the water, it was much more than a u-pick. Picking apples and pears is an annual tradition, and this weekend we also gathered peaches, apricots, plums, and Elle picked corn for the first time. Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do with all the produce!
