The strawberry field will be open for PYO Saturday at 8:30 until at least noon maybe longer depending on the condition of the field.
   Thanks to so many of you who have given such positive feedback from the berries you have had this early in the season.
    Sarah will be selling already picked and graded strawberries at market parking lot. So if you prefer you can buy them that way as well.
    Please know we are not able to take credit cards at this time. We strongly suggest you bring something to take your berries home in. We have plastic bags but a pan, bowl or box is much better.
    The barnyard is under reconstruction and encourage you to wait until later to visit the animals.
     Prices are $2 /pound PYO and $4.25/qt already picked. Organic strawberries are $5.50/qt.
 
                            
                  Savor and enjoy this special Easter.

   Sarah will be at the Culinary Institute Thursday, March 29th. The market is inside the culinary school. She will have lots of strawberries. We plan to have the field open for PYO this Saturday 8:30 to noon or possibly later depending on how the field looks. The berries look good. She will have onions, some carrots, a few mushrooms, some leeks, and I think lettuce. We are getting close to having more early spring items soon.
Take time to enjoy this special holiday. Faith PCA is having a Easter sunrise service on the beach at 79th avenue. Everyone is welcome.

   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.
