Another sign that spring is moving forward at warp factor ten: Thies Farm & Greenhouses
has announced that its strawberries are ready to be picked. You can find strawberries at both Thies locations -- 4215 North Hanley Road
and 3120 Creve Coeur Mill Road
-- but you can pick your own only at the Creve Coeur Mill Road farm. Thies' Web site advises calling ahead to 314-428-9878 to check on availability.
