So a tradition during berry season back in California, was always to drive to the coast for a weekend or day and berry pick at all the U-Pick farms (since they rarely had the same thing). 

However, yesterday the hubs of and I, discovered SmithBerryBarn!

Turns out this place is one of the best U-Pick places I have ever been. They have more varieties of berries in one place than I have ever seen.

It actually reminded me of my Uncle Russel’s farm in Cold Lake, Alberta, Canada. 

So we enjoyed the afternoon sun, picking berries, talking about things I remembered as a kid. Red faces, stained pockets, and cousins running around with buckets collecting wild sweet fruit. 

Now off to make magical creations with the fruits of our labor!
