Strawberry picking. Here are a few of the beauties we collected while strawberry picking.

Some perks to living in a small town in Quebec is the U-PICK season.

The middle to late June is usually strawberry picking season in Quebec. A great fun activity that can take a lot or a little bit of time depending on your picking location.

I went with my kids, my niece, nephews, and mother in law.  We spent 2 hours and were able to collect about 8 baskets of strawberries and I’m sure the kids ate about 1 full basket.
