Strawberries Continue

This is our second week of Strawberry U-Pick. Yield and berry size is declining but quality remains good. An early morning field survey Wednesday showed better conditions than we had expected. As of mid-morning, it looked like the field would not be entirely picked over Wednesday. Thursday’s Strawberry U-Pick will be staffed in the morning (with some good to moderate picking available) and then go to self-serve in the afternoon and evening. Check the website late morning Thursday for an updated field report.

On Saturday, we will probably pick most of the field for another good market supply, but may be open for afternoon strawberry self-serve. Based on good plant vigor and berry quality in Flavorfest and pockets of Jewel, we are anticipating a fairly long self-serve season. This can be a peaceful time to pick, so keep the strawberries on your radar for next week too.
