Strawberry update, May 9-14

The fields have really been through some changes. The heavy crop that was so prevalent a week ago is now past but the much cooler nights of last week has made a difference also. The nights are warming up now and I am hopeful that the fruit will be more plentiful. The fruit may not be as easy to pick nor as large but the sweetness is the best of the season. The hard part is to know how to manage the field for PYO. The field will be open Monday 8 am to 12 noon. I think it will reopen Wednesday morning and aim to be open Friday ( half day?) and Saturday. The weather and the fields will play a factor in the final decision. Please call or check the website for more up to date information.

 

Please note that we are buying rhubard from Columbia. Rhubard does not grow well here. However it makes great pies with strawberries and blueberries. So now is the time to get it while it is available. When the rhubard season ends it is very rare to have it. Ask Sarah about it if you shop the Myrtle’s Market at 10th avenue.
