WAYNE, Maine (AP) — Maine strawberry farmers say this season's harvest looks promising.
But as usual, much depends on the weather over the next few weeks.
Ford Stevenson of Stevenson's Strawberries in Wayne says he's looking forward to a plentiful season, especially after last year, which he said was cut short. He plans to open pick-your-own operations within a week or so.
Ben Marcus of Uncas Farms and Sheepscot General Store in Whitefield tells the Kennebec Journal (http://bit.ly/18QHd0W ) that his crop looks promising thanks to an early, warm spring.
Eric Seaman, of Seaman's Berry Farm in Litchfield says his crop is looking good and he too, expects to open within a week.
Seaman says to maximize the crop this spring, farmers need sunny, dry weather with periodic rain.
