VIPs! Very Important Plants!
Strawberries are planted in April in preparation for the following year’s harvest.
Blossoms are removed from the new plantings in May, allowing for more strength to go into the plants, and ensuring larger more plentiful berries the following June.
Cultivating and hoeing are constant through the growing season. While all of our fields are well tended to, the new plantings receive a lot of extra TLC for the first year!
Water! Water! Water!
Water is crucial for a healthy crop.
