Strawberry growers are very optimistic about the rest of the year.

They say the weather took its toll on the early strawberry season in Southern California. However, growers say the weather has been good since then with coastal growing areas escaping the extreme heat felt farther inland.

Growers now say a third of their annual crop will be ready in the near future.
