Late Season Red Raspberry Resumes

It still looks like a very late strawberry season this year. The cooler weather in March, April and early May pushed back strawberry ripening to about 10 days later than normal. Strawberry picking should begin some time during the last week of May --- close to our record late starting date of June 1. This starting time could change slightly depending upon the weather for the next few days so we will send out another email when the berry season actually begins.

We did have to irrigate during the very unusual frosty/freezing nights of May 12 and May 13 to protect the blossoms but the berries came thru undamaged.
