TV 9&10 News has a great video feature on Leelanau County’s various fruit crops where they talk with strawberry farmer Steve Bardenhagen, MSU Hort Station Coordinator Nikki Rothwell and others about the state of the fruit crops.
While farmers (and honeybees) struggled through a cold wet spring, no hard frost was a plus. It sounds like we’ll have strawberry shortcake for the 4th and everyone is pulling for the hot temps from recent days to continue!
