JUNE 11, 2014- It's the sweetest time of the year....
The strawberry picking season is right around the corner, but Mother Nature has put a minor rift in plans.
Farmers tell us this year the excessive snowfall actually benefitted the crops-acting as an insulated blanket.
But it has also delayed the growing process.
The delay has prompted farmers to push back the strawberry picking season to mid to late next week in an effort to let the strawberries fully develop.
Despite the delay, picked strawberries are now available at all six mason farms locations.
