Strawberries ripe for the picking at Afton Apple Orchard
A sea of small red berries attracted dozens of pickers Wednesday for the second full day of the summer strawberry season at Afton Apple Orchard.
Starting about a week later than usual, the orchard’s owner, Cindy Femling, said the unseasonably cold winter and recent heavy rainfall has slightly affected the strawberry crop. However, she said she anticipates a full four-week season.
“We’re excited to get this going for another season,” Cindy said.
