Swedish: strawberry season is almost over

How can I express that this is almost the last chance to get strawberries, because it won't be widely available?

I am asking you this question after reading that "Jordgubbarna sjunger på sista versen" in a newspaper. I am wondering what other ways to express this?

    Correct. The growing season is over, the pickers have left the fields (which in many cases probably are too soggy from the copious rains to allow serious work).

    You could of course just plainly say "Jordgubbarna är snart/nästan/praktiskt taget slut för i år", but they deserve a more poetic language.
