Hello you people who arrived here in search of info about the Benvoulin strawberry patch. The phone number is in the bottom paragraph. Happy picking!
So there I was at the Benvoulin strawberry patch at 7:30 this morning about to take a photo of those endless rows of green bushes and shiny red strawberries in that magical morning light, only to discover my battery was dead. On Sunday I went to take a photo of a brilliant orange Chevy at the Father's Day Show and Shine and was disappointed to see I had arrived sans memory card. I think I'm getting to the age where I need check list before I leave the house, at least as far as photography is concerned.
I did however remember to bring my own bucket to my first visit to the patch this year and I will be back so don't worry, you'll be seeing more strawberries in the future. This first batch will be just for eating as God intended and making into strawberry shortcake...which I suspect God had a hand in as well.
For Kelowna followers, berries are $1.90 a pound and they plan to pick until at least 11 this morning. For the long term they tell me there'll be berries for another 5 weeks. You can call 250-860-2964 for the most up to date info. This small pail of almost 4 lbs took 15 minutes to pick with nary a mosquito in site.
