Sarah will be at the Culinary market Thursday and yes she will have strawberries with her. We have waited to sell strawberries to get the quality where we believe it will be evident. The cool nights normally do not enhance flavor this time of the year. So we let the fruit stay on longer than usual to give more time for the berries to mature. The cold weather in March has been very difficult to manage. The fruit should get better as the season approaches strawberry weather conditions.
The field has been managed as well as I could in this "rodeo" weather. I am grateful to see it emerge so far in as good a shape as it has. I believe this crop will make for fruit that will be more than pleasing. With the crop advancing at this stage the Pick your own should not be far away ( maybe beginning Friday or Saturday March 30 or 31 ). Keep posted because it could be sooner. The produce market will open soon, do not have a date yet. March has not been ideal growing conditions but when things turn we should be in position to go with it.
Enjoy each day for the good that is in it, for a merry heart is a healthy thing.
