Its June! I almost forgot that it's time to pick strawberries.

According to their Facebook page, T-Berries has a sign that will go up while strawberries are in season, and they are estimating that picking time will be somewhere around Father's Day weekend. While you are there you'll also be able to pick up their low sugar jams and jellies, as well as natural crock fermented sauerkraut, locally made maple syrup, honey, as well as their Minnesota made BBQ sauce that they think you will love.

The Strawberry Basket of Monticello has a brand new website which you can visit by clicking HERE. The Strawberry Basket says their berries should be ready for picking around the end of June, but you are welcome to stop by anytime to pick up lots of other great products, like Honey, lip balms, lotion bars, beeswax food wraps, T-shirts, Tanks, and Baseball hats are available all year long.
AND if you love garlic as I do, this is one location where you can grab yourself some fresh garlic, which will be ready for pick up in mid-August. If you are wanting some, you may want to call them starting June 15th so you can place your pre-order.
The Strawberry Basket also has blueberry fields that underwent some major renovations this year, so blueberries may be limited when it's blueberry picking time.

Nelson Berries will not have strawberry picking this year, but they are super excited that they have new plants in the ground and hope that you'll mark your calendar to get strawberries from Nelson's in 2023.
