With freeze warnings posted for Friday and Saturday nights, we had to cover the strawberries again last weekend. It didn't get quite as cold as predicted, but better safe that sorry. And we weren't sorry! We took the blankets off Sunday morning, and the berries looked great.
We have twelve rows of Sweet Charley berries, which ripen a little earlier than Chandler berries in the rest of the field. If the weather stays warm, and we don't get too much rain, we may see the first red gems in the middle of May.
For the next few weeks, we'll be open every day from 10:00 to 5:00, except April 16, when we'll be closed for Easter. Wagon rides will run at 11:00, 1:00, and 3:00 every day, with the cow train going out at 12:24 and 2:45.
Roosteraunt schedule: 11:00 to 3:00 every day except Monday.
Remember that membership cards will be waiting for you in the market on your first visit.
