Melbourne Part 2: On the Way we went Cherry Picking

Why is it that fruit has to be seasonal? Why can't they be around all year round? (That's right, I'm still waiting for you figs).

It has been one of my dreams to go fruit picking. Like actually go to a farm and pick fruit (Don't judge). Not that I haven't been to a fruit farm. I have, but that was 5 years ago, and there was no hand-picking - the fruit was already picked for you. In case you were wondering, we went to Tasmania and I STILL remember how amazing those apricots tasted (They were the BEST I kid you not). To those who haven't been to a fruit farm, believe me when I say that you can actually taste the DIFFERENCE between store-bought/supermarket 'fresh' fruit and organic farm-fresh fruit. I think I go to foodie heaven.

Despite the fact that we only picked fruit for about 3 hours; it was arguably, I could say, one of the best things we did on the trip. Not just cus it was a fun experience, but it was - ahem - food. And it was the cherries. And the fact that the cherries were organic. (Oh yes, there's a difference) Now before you call me an organic snob, organic food absolutely ROCKS. It is flippin' amazing because not only is it beneficial for your health, but they taste loads better.  

We literally bought 2.5kg of cherries even though we only had 2.5 days left. And to top it off we bought 2 extra punnets of blackberries and raspberries (sorry they were eaten before I could photograph it). Oh berry bliss heaven. My dad couldn't stop stuffing his face. 

If you're ever gonna road trip somewhere in the countryside, I HIGHLY recommend you go to a local fruit farm. Not only is the fruit amazing, the farmers  are (usually) so incredibly lovely and welcoming. You'll come out of the place with a huge dorky grin on your face. 

Now back on the road we go...
