Strawberries still producing in November

A Barriere gardener says his strawberries have produced from early summer until mid-November

Area resident Bruce Wolfwer’s garden was still producing strawberries on Nov. 13. He says the plants have not stopped producing since early summer. Other locals report they have budding shrubs, roses blooming, and flowers that should be dormant adding colour to their gardens. The blooms are unusual for this time of year, but thanks to the unusually warm October and November we have experienced not entirely unexpected. However, winter showed itself last Tuesday when heavy rains throughout the area also brought snow flurries, even to lower elevations.
