VERY early berries

It looks like this could be the end of the strawberry raffle...we decided this does not count though. These berries were the very first and they took Wayne a good long while to collect, walking hundreds of feet up and down every single row of berries. The quality and quantities do not qualify as the first basket of true, good berries signifying the onset of a continuous strawberry harvest that our farm stand strawberry raffle boasts.

But these berries were very good. They needed a good washing as the rain had splattered them with a lot of grit and they weren't entirely red, but in comparison to no strawberries, they were delightfully sweet. Now the rain is upon us again which is no benefit to more harvests like this, but there is not frost either which is a benefit. Perhaps it will be an early strawberry season this year....I promise to keep you posted.
