Strawberries will never be the same…

Things are really taking off this Spring. The strawberries we are growing taste absolutely amazing. Juicier, sweeter and more tender than any store-bought berry ever. This season we have about 45 berry plants growing, I can already tell next year we’ll need room for double that.

The peach trees are doing equally as well. In about 2 weeks, we’ll need to trim back the peaches so only 1 per 6-8 inches are left. We don’t want the young tree to be stressed or crack under the weight.

The drip irrigation we had installed by my now employer, Lupton Irrigation has been perfect for irrigating our strawberry patch. It lets us keep the crowns and fruits dry while getting plenty of water to the roots. This prevents any rotting of our berries!

Wipe that drool off your chin. 🙂
