  Monday looks like rain. We will have pre-picked berries available at the market. So you can still enjoy strawberries even on a rainy day! PYO may open Tuesday or Wednesday.

      The flavor of the berries has improved but the field is still very wet. Hopefully the sun will get through and begin to dry things out.
      Meanwhile we will have some pre-picked berries at he market about 9:30 am. We are pulling some beautiful radishes and lettuce as well. We plan to have the field open tomorrow.( Wednesday) at 8:00 am.

The weather has not been good for strawberry picking. The field is wet and today the berries had very little flavor. Therefore we will not open the field Monday but Tuesday looks better. The weather is supposed to have warmer nights a couple of days from now which with sunshine is what we need to get the fruit back to quality. With the pre-picked berries on Tuesday there should be some spring veggies as well.

   The strawberry field will not be able to be open this Saturday. There are too few berries in the field but we will have some pre-picked berries. After trying to save some rows for Saturday it became evident that there were too few berries to have both PYO and pre-picked. The plants needed cleaning so the guys picked what was left as they cleaned the plants.
The cool nights have a very definite effect on the ripening of the berries. The low temperatures have slowed the berries from getting ripe as quickly.
Sarah or Deb will be at the market parking lot selling pre-picked berries until they are gone.
 The field should be open next week possibly Monday or Tuesday.
