It’s June which means its STRAWBERRY season! The strawberry plant grows three-leaflet clusters along its long stems. Small white flowers bloom, then wither, and greenish-white strawberries appear and later ripen to bright red when they are ready to be picked and eaten. Watch for locally grown fresh strawberries to be available soon!
