Strawberry Fields Forever

I was afraid the strawberries didn't even have blossoms, but the early ones do. Whew! They are covered to hold in heat and protect those precious flowers from a frosty night - we're not quite out of the woods yet, where that is concerned!

Looking back at last year, what a difference!  Less than one year ago we had Strawberries on our Farmer's Market stand!  One week later, they were in CSA boxes.
Last year there was actually concern that the strawberry season would be over and done with by the time our Strawberry Sunday event rolled around!  This year, the exact opposite:  Will there be berries for our friends to pick on June 19??? 

It usually works out, just not exactly how planned.  So while last year our CSA members visited the farm and got to pick the last of the strawberries, it looks like this year they'll get the first!
