Strawberries

BerryPatch_0019_smallOur 2017 Strawberry season is now here!   We are picking between 20 and 40 quarts per day and they are for sale in the Market on a first come first serve basis.  There are not enough berries for U-Pick yet.   The Strawberries are in bloom with lots of green berries forming.   Hopefully U-Pick will begin the first week of May.  We are busy watching the weather for FROST.  We have been covering and uncovering the patch as the weather changes.  A frost will burn off the flowers that become the strawberries, so we must protect them.  The rest of the info below applies to Strawberry season once it begins.
