Strawberry update March 25

The season has certainly been different from the past three years. With all the mild weather and few chilly nights it appears Spring has about a two week jump on what we normally see. For me it has largely been a challenge to do eight weeks work in four weeks time. Conditions such as these force me to be vigilant in many areas all at once. Insect pressures , disease pressures, weed pressures, timing of crops can actually can all become issues that need attention in conditions such as these. It has been somewhat difficult to know just when would come in. We ask that you bear with us as we work with this season’s unique character.

Strawberries look good. We are now beginning to pick for the market and anticipate opening the field March 31. The organic strawberries are being picked now also.

Asparagus is now being harvested. If you have not had fresh asparagus I recommend you try it. I did not like asparagus growing up because all we had was canned asparagus. Later when we grew our own asparagus was I surprised to find the difference fresh made.

Look for spinach, chard, turnips, kale, kohlrabi, mustard greens, radishes, cabbage, much of this is coming in from the farm in organic and conventional.
