Saskatoon berries are at their peak picking time at the end of July, and first week of August. If you’re eager, and can pick around the fruit that needs a little more time to hang, you can head out to The Bloomingfields in Didsbury to get started this weekend.
The Bloomingfields is a beautiful property that also features big blooms of rhubarb, raspberries, cherries, carrots, potatoes, and onions for picking. There’s a tea house, a large lawn, and friendly staff to point you around.
