Strawberry picking will start in three weeks

Strawberry Picking This email is just to let you know that Strawberry picking is forecast to start about May 21 -- about the same time as 2015! We started seeing significant bloom during the warm weather of a week ago and a berry farmers rule of thumb is ripe fruit 30 days later. Except for the Cabot planted on the upper level, the strawberry plants, particularly the Flavorfest & Mayflower, seem in excellent shape for a good harvest.

Red Raspberry picking should begin about May 27
