With all the beautiful and warm weather we’ve been enjoying in Vancouver, Fraser Valley farmers are saying the strawberries are ready for harvest.
Talking to The Province, 40-some-odd-year farmer Alf Krause said, “It’s the earliest ever for me.”
He continued, “The weather has been warm, and it’s pushing everything up. If we keep having this California weather, I think it’s just going to continue.”
The local U-picks say they could be open by next weekend.
