Behind the scenes at Kula Country Farms this month, staffer Jana Ibarra adds a coat of red paint to a glass jar while making decorations for the upcoming Fourth of July. "We try to decorate for all the holidays," she said. "It's fun and festive up here." In the background is a section of the annual pick-your-own-strawberries display, which comes down at the end of May each year. Also taking up space behind the farm's stand are many Halloween decorations. Ibarra said farmhands will soon be planting pumpkins to prepare for that busy holiday.
