A Great Opening Day

We had quite a surprise Friday evening - during the day, the berries ripened!  We quickly drove around putting our strawberry signs up.  Our first customer, Phyllis, arrived bright and early Saturday morning at 6:40!  I meant to take her picture, but it got quite busy about the time she left.  She is a very loyal customer - Phyllis, come back soon so I can post your picture!

Strawberry pickers came and went all day - braving the weather.   Storms were all around us, but barely a drop of rain fell here - yahoo!  Thank you to old friends and new friends who came to visit the farm today :)

Our last family of the day taking a rest with Farmer Jeff on the John Deere swing after picking strawberries.   Makaylan, Grayson, and Payton (not in the picture) helped me plant flowers, played with the kitties and doggies and fed the catfish.  A wonderful end to a busy day!
We wish you all a joyous Easter!
