Growing Nature's Super Food: Berries!

British Columbia has the perfect climate to grow berries, one of nature's super foods. Berries and even their seeds are a good source of fiber, rich in flavonoids and carotenoids, and high in antioxidants. From strawberries and raspberries to wild blackberries, tayberries and huckleberries, my garden always has a wide variety to choose from.

I often describe coastal British Columbia, where I have my summer home, as "berry heaven." The climate and soils here are perfect for strawberries, black raspberries, loganberries and many more varieties. Berries comprise a large part of my diet during the summer and early fall months that I spend here. Berries of all kinds are excellent sources of fiber and rich in antioxidants. I grow strawberries, black raspberries, and an exotic Scottish hybrid known as the tayberry. This variety - each with a different harvest time, and supplemented by wild salal berries that grow in profusion on my property - ensures a steady supply of healthy, delicious berries from early July well into late summer.
