Let the U Picks Begin!!!

My favorite time of year has started, U pick season! I love going out and picking our own produce, there is such a thrill in bringing home something you harvested yourself. Not to mention the fun with my family and the fact that the taste of fresh produce is second to none!
Dan's Farm and Country Market
Victoria, BC

My family had to tell me to quit my fanatical picking since it really wasn't long before we had two pints full of strawberries. It was a warm day but overcast which actually worked in our favor so we weren't sweating in the hot sun. We had a lot of fun trying to find the biggest record breaking strawberry and I think that the winner was my oldest with the bright red berry in her palm!

Of course our reward for being such great strawberry pickers! Unfortunately dairy doesn't agree with me in my pregnancy but I have to recommend their samosas since they were absolutely scrumptious! They have an amazing market full of local produce and a delectable selection of homemade bakery goodies.

The next morning I think I made the best waffles we have ever had thanks to some of the most delicious strawberries!

Better get out there and find your local U picks for some really great fun and delicious memories!
