Mother Nature is in Charge

We will be opening for the 2017 season on Saturday June 3 at 8:30 am. However,  we will NOT have strawberries this weekend as originally expected. Mother Nature simply decided we were going to have cool, cloudy damp weather this past week which is not what strawberries need to ripen.

We were looking forward to making strawberry shortcake this weekend, so we are as disappointed as you are. The forecast for next week is for temperatures in the 70s and sunny – perfect for strawberries. Stay tuned.

We will be open beginning Saturday with asparagus (green & purple) and rhubarb.
