Any good strawberries yet this year?

Sharuf | May 10, 2010 12:55 AM

I fondly remember the big gorgeous strawberries I used to get at my favorite farmers market (no longer in existence).

Stopped by the new tiny farmers market in Marinwood Sat. and saw two vendors selling strawberries. The berries didn't look very promising but I bought a box anyway ($3.50).

Had some for breakfast, and they didn't taste any better than they looked. Small, seedy, and none too sweet.

So -- is it a weather thing? Too early in the season? Are there great berries at other markets this year?
