It is now, officially, strawberry season in New York. This year's season seems to be a little later than last. Many local farms are just opening for pick-your-own berries. But don't wait too long -- the season only lasts a few weeks.
Here are a handful of places in the greater Capital Region that you can pick your own strawberries. Know of a good place not on this list? Please share!
Important: you should call ahead the day you're heading out to get the conditions
