LOL! No fooling espeically knowing that they are 1/4 that price down south. I fail to understand how gas prices affect costs that much. If the farmer got a cut I'd say "go for it" but they don't. Been noticing empty shelves in our town and in the city, we are all wondering if its directly due to the high cost of food and transporting food. And we live on major highways, can't imagine how it is further north. Guess that's a whole other discussion eh, the cost of food.

I enjoyed the one pint on its own, then later on, had some with milk. The other pint I'm going to enjoy this weekend. Sure makes them special, that's for sure.

Sounds fun with growing up on the chicken farm, Mollie. See you guys were also free range chickens before it all became the fad and the prices went through the roof. Enjoy the eggs. :)

I bought blueberries from Langley, one pint = $3.50. I just closed my eyes and bought them. They are pretty good, no mold so that is a total bonus. I can't believe the prices though. Makes enjoying them that much more important. *grin*

I grew up on a chicken farm, none of our hens were caged. Later my DH and I had a small flock, our kids delighted in catching potato beetles to feed to them. The place I have found is the same, the chickens are outdoors in a pen with sheep- I can't wait to see the colour of the yolks!

Leah, I was so surprised to see the truck roll in advertising cherries! They aren't just late, as you said they are mighty late. When we lived on the coast - down in Surrey - cherries was the first fruit of the season, followed by the plums and then the apples. As you said, the wonky weather has affected the trucks rolling out of the Okanagan - figured that was the issue. I also heard that a massive storm - one not seen for 100-150yrs - just went through the north and central Okanagan. I wonder if it hit Kelowna and how my cousin fared - they have apple orchards. They have been talking lots on the blueberries but haven't seen any BC berries up here in a long time. Hope they bring some up as I heard that they are particularly tasty this year. I miss blackberries. In Surrey we had a rock pile filled with black berry bushes.

Mollie, that's too bad the rains have made it tough on local produce in your area. Enjoy your free range eggs. I won't say nothing more, nope my mouth is sealed. LOL! It's an old joke as we had free range before it became fad, before they charged higher prices for the privelage. And we laugh as free range is the cheapest way to raise chickens, so hey good on the farmers for making money. ;) The eggs definiitely have a richer taste. :)

Way too much rain here in NS as well but despite that we are eating strawberries, blueberries, corn, zucchini, kale- the local markets are loaded. A bonus- I just found a source for free range eggs one road over.

I am enjoying the local blackberries, peach plums (an early plum), transparent apples and veggies from the local farm... Wish I was organized enough to plant my own garden, but that hasn't happened yet!

Coming up our fruit trees will have green gage plums, 3 more varieties of apples, prune & damson plums as well as a couple of walnuts and a couple of pears. And Blackberries will be continuing for some time.


I know around here, the trucks from the Okanogan are having difficulty as many of the fruit is delayed or low producers this year... Heard that it might be a bumper crop for blueberries though.... Strawberries & raspberries weren't great... Cherries were mighty late.

I live in an agriculture based area and we don't really have anyone selling local produce, not like they do in the south. The bits that have shown up at the small farmer's market are over-priced and not very good. Including from my place of business, they charge too much for the little bits they managed to grow. We've had heavy rains, the year prior we were literally burning up, makes for low produce and berry production. Saskatoons aren't that great, last year they shriveled and dried on the bushes, this year they are tasteless from the lack of sunshine. We finally have sun now, however, it's a little late for the berries. No garden, live in an apt and the one time I tried to put stuff outside, it was all stolen. My parents neighbours left for holidays, so my Dad and I said we'll have to go over and raid their garden. LOL!

We've often discussed how silly it is to live in an agricultural based area and buy produce from California. For whatever reason southern BC doesn't seem to like sharing with northern BC and anything local - as I mentioned - is over priced.

I haven't even seen the fruit truck come through this year which is strange. I must be missing it, as it usually starts in July but I haven't seen a thing in the Co-op parking lot. Usually I buy my fruit and whatever produce comes up from them (they are from the Okanagan/southern interior BC). Odd.
