This might be your last chance to pick strawberries this season. When I checked on Wednesday night, Jones Family Farm is telling us that they are at PEAK SEASON in the strawberry fields! The combination of the early rains and cool temps at the beginning of the season and the progression into warm weather now have made for FABULOUS picking conditions. The berries are sun-ripened, juicy, and sweet - just the way nature intended - and they're calling your name (can you hear them?) It's a short season so DON'T WAIT. PLEASE call the Crop Report Message JUST BEFORE you come (203-929-8425). Remember, the harvesting farm address can vary. https://www.facebook.com/JonesFamilyFarms
