At the beginning of summer, I put together a list of things I wanted to accomplish this summer as a way of exploring more of Vancouver and its surrounding areas. Would you believe, that I’ve lived next to a U-Pick farm for years and have never gone to pick berries? It’s crazy! But no more.
We’re approaching the end of strawberry season and it could be seen on the fields. Most of the bushes were empty. Typically strawberries are in season from June to July in Vancouver.
But we walked to the very back of their field and were met with success. I guess most people don’t make the trek all the way to the very back. It was worth it though!
It was a lot of fun peeking under the plants in search of the plumpest and juiciest strawberries.
We ended up with 6.5 pounds of strawberries. Each pound was $1.50. They’re all so sweet and juicy – much better than anything you get at the supermarket. Time to find some delicious strawberry recipes!
Or if you don’t have time to pick them, they also have a stand with fresh berries ready to go.
Up next is blueberry and blackberry season so you know what I’ll be doing in a couple weeks!
