Uncovering the sleeping beauties - I mean berries

Our berries have been protected through the winter with row covers held down by sandbags.  This provided a warmer temperature for them through the cold winter months.  Jordon and Kyle are carefully pulling the row covers off the berries, but leaving them in the field just in case we have more very cold weather before the berries ripen.  You can see the rye grass between the rows for erosion control and weed control.  It will be gone before berry picking time.
