WEST SALEM, WI (WXOW)--Strawberry crops are ahead of schedule according to local farmer John Jolivette.
Jolivette said that's in part--because of the mild winter and early spring weather this year.
Jolivette owns about 15 acres of strawberries. He said, because the strawberries are about ten days ahead of schedule, there's only about a week left for picking.
Jolivette adds that the warm weather we've been having is also a factor when it comes to picking strawberries. Jolivette said extra watering is a necessity, otherwise strawberries will become too ripe, too quickly and not reach their full potential.
