$60,000/acre to plant strawberries?

California’s water and labor shortages are two reasons why farmers planted 4,000 fewer acres of strawberries this year. For my city slicker friends, check out RFDTV’s article, “Strawberry Fields Forever? Maybe Not.”

Looks as if next year our garden may include strawberry plants. They should be a welcome addition to tomatoes and peaches.

Savor your sweet strawberries.
