SHELTON, Conn. — Puffy white clouds drifted over picturesque Pumpkinseed Hill, making Wednesday a perfect opening day for pick-your-own strawberries at Jones Family Farm.

The farm had planned on opening Thursday, but the conditions were, er, ripe a day earlier and in-the-know families and fruit lovers flocked to the fields, picking boxes and baskets in hand.

Barring bad weather, the farm should be open for business today and through the weekend.
