and to just $1.00 per lb if you pick over 50 lbs.

On the farm this week, we also have beautiful 
Blue Crop Blueberries.  The bushes are loaded with larger size, sweet fruit right now.  They are so easy to pick, and so good for you.
We are at the end of the season for raspberries, but you can still find some in the Saanich and Cohos.
Just a handful of Chester blackberries have started to ripen if you want to get the first taste of the season.
Marionberry season is over and the yellow raspberries need a few weeks to ripen up again.
