T minus 5 and counting...

AAACCCKKKK!!! We're starting to see a lot of these...The Farmer says we are at 10% bloom, which means that 5 weeks from now, we will be picking berries. The countdown has begun!!



The rows are looking pretty filled out now...

Remember when they looked like this?


Or way back when...They were just little nippers...


Oh, the nostalgia!! Where did the time go?

Seriously, where did it go? We have a ton of stuff to get done, and only 5 weeks to do it in!!!

I guess this is when we start putting in our winter hours too...

See you in August!

FIVE WEEKS....FIVE WEEKS!!!! How is that possible? The strawberries aren't even out yet! Wow....but....they say down in the 50's again this weekend, so maybe that'll slow it down a tad!

I have always wondered how the berry farmers predict when picking will begin. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

I can't wait for the berries, the pies, the shortcake, oh my!

I noticed they put the bees out in the field behind us today! They were swarming a bush in our backyard. I can't believe the raspberries are blooming already. It seems early!
