April 8, 2012 Strawberry Update

 

The fields should be open Monday through Saturday. Field opens at 8:00am. Please bring a container to put your berries in after you pick. The fruit is heavy, nice large berries and easy picking. Unlike most years when I encourage you to wait to pick in volume, I think now is a good time to get started with volume picking. The weather should be warm enough with lots of sunshine that will help the flavor of the fruit. Although it will be cooler than some weeks we have had in March.

Note: the one row of strawberries beside ( east side) the two rows with white plastic is a different variety. When you pick these berries be sure to pick them fully ripe. This variety takes longer to reach full flavor than the other varieties.

 

Take a look in the bakery. We have something new in the strawberry line, Strawberry bread. Ask for a sample.

 

 

We will be back at Myrtle’s Market in Myrtle Beach

beginning this Wednesday ( April 11 ) .

Don’t forget about Asparagus, greens, spinach, beets and for organic lettuce, organic cabbage, organic turnips, organic chard, organic strawberries. Garden peas are being picked this week. They are really good in a salad.


At this point the blueberries, blackberries, plums and peaches look good. The fruit is really growing for this time of year. I am thinking the high bush blueberries may come in early this year. Perhaps at the later part of this month.

 

We are planting tomatoes now. We hope to have a strong supply of regular and heirloom varieties. Don’t over look the small grape and cherry varieties. They often have excellent flavor and really do well in salads.

 

 

 

Thank you for your interest.
