Shine on, shine on Strawberry Moon

The Strawberry Moon was named by some Native Americans, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, because it was the time when strawberries ripen, which anyone knows who has recently brought home some of the scrumptious berries from farm stands.

In Europe, the Old Farmer says, it was known as the Full Rose Moon.

Wednesday will be a warm, sunny day on Shelter Island, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).
