DINWIDDIE COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) - Warmer weather and the lack of rain so far this year has turned this spring's strawberry crop into a bumper one, said Todd Adams, ADAM's Acres Strawberry Patch.

Adams said the weather has resulted in ripe berries 10 days earlier than normal. He also said the strawberries are sweeter than normal.
