The Mitten State Strawberry Guide
Is there anything better than biting into a fresh, homegrown strawberry on a warm summer day? From their cheery heart-shaped exterior to their juicy-sweet tartness, Michigan strawberries are beloved by locals and visitors alike.
Find Your Frost Dates
The first sunny, 60-degree Michigan day is a highly-coveted and celebrated time of year. Michiganders everywhere rejoice when we finally get a chance to say goodbye to iced water troughs and pitch-black morning adventures in snow-capped barns and coops. We know the thaw is fleeting, and snow is likely to fall again soon, but for those first few warm spring days, we allow ourselves to get lost in dreams of green and bountiful harvests.
Know Your Hardiness Zone
Spring has (according to the calendar) arrived in the beautiful state of Michigan. Yet for most Michiganders, spring is less about tulips, sunshine, and green grass and more about April snow showers, frozen mud, and cracking your car window with the heated seats on. Spring in Michigan is like waiting for eggs to hatch or barnyard babies to be born – you never know what you’re going to get!
