Short and sweet: Afton Apple's strawberry season abbreviated
An unseasonably long winter and a wet beginning to summer may have shortened the strawberry picking season at Afton Apple Orchard, but it has not stopped hundreds of area residents from flocking to its fields.
"This is our second year coming and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day," said Stillwater resident Rachel Karasek, who was picking strawberries Tuesday morning with her three children. "It's easier this year. And, we always have fun."
