Some may believe that strawberry picking is not a subject to be taken up for July but let us tell you why we are taking it up at this time. Club members who are planting spring bearing varieties will not get a crop until next June, but those who have planted everbearing varieties should get a fair crop this fall if it is not too dry. We are giving the first year members this information now so that they can use it for their everbearing varieties. This information should be filed away carefully so you can turn to it again next spring when your June bearing varieties are ready to pick.
