We’re getting closer to strawberry time at last! This is a healthy strawberry plant in Okeana. Looking at all the blossoms it will have plenty of berries. My mouth is watering because the flavor of a fresh picked strawberry is unlike the berries that have transported from other parts of the country. Berries are delicate and growers around the USA have worked hard on getting varieties to us that we can enjoy all year, but buying from a local grower will give you an intense and juicy flavor experience unlike transported berries. Contact your local berry growers and they will pick them fresh for you that morning.
