We hand-planted 3,000 new strawberries in preparation for next year! First-year strawberries will produce larger berries and a more abundant crop next spring. We are also planting almost all of our strawberry patch on black plastic to make for easier picking! We are excited about what’s to come in the 2019 season!
The last day for strawberries this year will be Monday, June 12th. Come and help us clean out the patch this Saturday from 8-12 or Monday 6-8 PM.
We have some great berries, but we won’t have them for too much longer! This week we will be open on Monday 6-8 PM and Saturday 8-12 for picking. Just give us a call to schedule an appointment if you want to come and pick any other time this week (620-381-6702). Hope that you can come out and get some strawberries this year!
Celebrating National Strawberry Day by uncovering the first berries of the season! We covered them up last fall with a row cover and straw to protect them from the winter cold.
We typically wait a little longer to remove the row covers and straw, but given that it is #NationalStrawberryDay we thought it would be fitting to start today. We’ll keep slowly removing the straw from the rows over the next few weeks as spring arrives.
It’s always so exciting to look underneath the straw for the first time in the spring, from what we saw today it looks like the row covers and straw protected them well through the winter! The berries look good at this stage and we’re excited to see them continue to grow through the spring.
We are excited to announce that we will host a vintage market on May 20th at Tenth Street Orchard! This juried show will feature a selection of top vendors with a wide variety of vintage, antique, home decor, jewelry and handcrafted items for sale. The orchard will also have ripe strawberries for picking, live music, entertainment, and food vendors. Plan on bringing the family out to search for treasures and enjoy a day of junking & strawberries!
We will post updates and feature vendors on our Facebook page. Vendor spaces are filling up fast and we are excited about the quality and selection that we will be able to offer at the show! If you are interested in becoming a vendor, fill out the application page and we will contact you directly.
