U-Pick strawberry field opens at Remlinger's

   Remlinger Farms U-Pick strawberry field in Carnation is open for the 1999 season. Strawberries are extra special this year due to extra moisture and sunshine, which is ideal growing weather. The U-Pick fields will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day. Children are welcome in the strawberry fields when accompanied by an adult. On weekends, pony rides, steam train rides, petting farm animals, puppet shows, and a hay maze and jump are available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information and to access the Ripe and Ready Line, call the farm at 425-333-4135 or 425-451-8740.
