FYI:  If anyone is considering doing "Pick Your Own" this weekend, forget it!  Battleview just posted on Facebook that "Pick Your Own" will be closed tomorrow, 5/20 and Sunday, 5/21 to allow for more ripening.  Not exactly a surprise to me since as I indicated in my blog post, the field was not exactly bursting with ripened berries.  While they also sell them in their market by the pint and the quart, they're saying that until they see how the ripening progresses, they aren't sure if they'll have them for sale.

No, it's about the same time every year. We are quite a bit south of Sussex.

Battleview announced on Facebook that pick your own strawberries is done for this season. The hot, humid weather put an end to them. I managed to pick a second batch week before last. I don't do pick your own sour cherries. But for anyone interested, it's scheduled to start on June 19th though it'salways best to check before going.
