Strawberries are looking great, much better than last year. The cool weather this upcoming week will slow the process somewhat, but hopefully there are no frost or freezing temps (like last year when many berries were lost). We should be starting to harvest in about two weeks. Currently there are a lot of flowers and some berries starting to form.
The strawberry crop has declined sharply, therefore, we will be only open Monday, Wednesday, Friday and possibly Saturday this week, 8am to 5pm (or until sold out.) The last days of the season may be June 17, 19, 21 (and 22?). If berries are available after that, we will let you know.
This week is the peak of the strawberry season. Now is the time to think strawberries, especially if you plan to make jam, freeze berries for smoothies, etc. Please pre-order large quantities of pre-picked berries ($5/qt). PYO fields are open 8am-8pm if you prefer to pick your own ($2/lb).
“How much longer will the season last?” is a popular question. This week and next week for sure, then it will depend on the weather. Hopefully, we will have berries through the third week in June… but we don’t know now.
During the rain (Thursday) we are offering curbside service for strawberry sales. $5 per quart. Open until 8pm.
The strawberry prices have dropped to regular-season prices of $5 per pre-picked quart and $2 per PYO pound. The season may be shorter than normal, but we hope for another 3+ weeks… don’t wait too long to get your strawberries.
