Strawberry picking will start about a week earlier than 2014

Strawberry Picking This email is just to let you know that Strawberry picking is forecast to start about May 21 -- a week earlier than 2014! We are seeing scattered bloom now and a berry farmers rule of thumb is ripe fruit 30 days later. Despite the cold winter, the strawberry plants seem in excellent shape for a good harvest.

Red Raspberry picking should begin about the first of June
