It's Strawberry Time In Eastern Carolina

It's a sure sign spring is here. Strawberries are ready.

At Garner Farms on Highway 70 in Newport the field is full of red berries. Workers are out picking to get the berries on the shelves.

Farmer Clayton Garner says by next week there should be enough berries in the field to let people pick their own.

Garner says if the weather continues to cooperate it looks like it will be a great season for the berries.

The mild winter helped the strawberries ripen about a week earlier than normal.
