Your favorite seasonal fruits and vegetables are beginning to appear at local farm stands. Strawberry lovers are currently enjoying this early June treat. If you have some extra time, pick your own! You’ll be surprised at how enjoyable it can be.
Another seasonal favorite is the arrival of the “Boys of Summer,” the North Fork Ospreys. They played their first game of the season Sunday against the Riverhead Tomcats. Ryan Williams hit a bases-loaded RBI single, bringing Darrin Standish home for the first run of the season. The Ospreys defeated the Tomcats, 7-1. The Ospreys take on Southampton tonight, Thursday, at 7 at Cochran Park in Peconic. All are welcome to enjoy the finest in collegiate baseball. It’s fun, free and a great way to spend an early summer night.

A fond farewell to my in-laws, longtime Southold residents Kay and Tom Byrnes, who relocated to Cape Coral, Fla., earlier this week. They are known to many as the original proprietors of the North Road Deli. All the best to them as they begin a new chapter in their lives.
