STRAWBERRY PLANT CLEANING IS DONE!!

STRAWBERRY PLANT CLEANING IS DONE!! We had some great help come in today to get it done. We did 4 rows yesterday and finished the other 36 today. We pulled the dead leaves off of 44,000 plants and weeds from around the plants. We will cover the strawberry patch on Monday afternoon before it starts turning cold again.

Strawberry Patch cleaning!

We uncovered the strawberry patch today. It will stay uncovered until next Tuesday or Wednesday, weather permitting. At this stage, the strawberry plant is still dormant. We want to keep it dormant a little while longer. The plant can handle temps down into the mid 20's. If we keep the covers on during this warm spell, the plants will break dormancy. If they break dormancy, then we will start getting flowers, and we will have to start thinking about frost

Just returned back from a 2 day Strawberry Conference in Va. Beach.

Just returned back from a 2 day Strawberry Conference in Va. Beach. Monday we walked the fields of several Strawberry growers in the Pungo area. They are always a couple of weeks ahead of us, so we can see how the year is shaping up. It is enough warmer there, so their strawberries are uncovered and there is no snow. As soon as the snow melts off we need to uncover our berries and brush off all the dead leaves from winter and pull any weeds that are growing in the hole with the strawberries. Tuesday was an indoor meeting. It is always great to

Busy night on the farm

Last night was a busy night on the farm.  At 11:30 we started cleaning the snow off of the greenhouses.  The 6 greenhouses took us about 1 1/2 hours to clean off.  The side of the greenhouse facing the wind were fairly clean, the snow had drifted to the opposite side where it was up to 15 inches deep.  Then we discovered that the heater was off in the greenhouse across the road.  We have tomato seedlings started in there and the mesclun mix is growing.  We have the thermostat set for 55 degrees and it was 45 degrees in the greenhouse.  We were pretty sure
