Being the busiest month around here,  May has zoomed by.  With the exception of the predictable equipment breakdowns in spring, things went smoothly as we prepared fields and planted.  We love the blank slate that the fields are in early May.  Now they are quickly greening up with everything we artists farmers scattered over them.  Add in a year's worth of dormant weed seeds and oh how green it is.   It's amazing just how quickly a plowed field greens up. What with buttercup and bindweed and morning glory and sorrel and thistle and vetch and dandelions and my personal favourite to pull, clover.  Although John was determined that we do "pre-emergent hoeing", I can tell you now, we didn't get to it.

Regardless, it's looking good out there.  Very spring-ish;  a sea of green but for the white of  strawberries in full bloom, the birds, the bees, us, the mower, everything growing and going so fast!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We hope you too are enjoying the sounds, colour and activity that spring brings.  All the while, get to eating the last of your frozen berries.  Fresh strawberries are coming soon in June!

'Tis heading toward the end of May which means only one thing around here---BERRIES!  Not quite yet, but once we hit June we'll be anticipating  the first strawberries of the season. Last year we began picking on June 15th so keep that date in mind.  Hopefully this years strawberries can meet or beat that date.  We've been, maybe not as busy as bees, but busy preparing for the berry season and we  are excited for the picking to begin--especially since we are currently staring down an empty freezer with not a berry to be had.

I'll be posting here to give you our best estimate as to when the strawberries are ready for the picking. Stay tuned.  Until then there'll be farm news and photos to share as we get back into the swing of the website.

*We will not be taking any pre-picked strawberry orders in June.

Happy days of May to you all~
