Sweet Summer Strawberries


Strawberry Days Are Upon Us Here At CRO!


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Don't forget about our Strawberry Harvest Party THIS Saturday! There will plenty of Strawberries for everyone!

                                                                                                                                                                                             



 Here's a picture of what you will be working with on one of the farms. It may not look like much with all the weeds, but there are lots and lots of juicy, sweet berries in there; you just have to find them!!


                                                                                                                                                                       

  Like these ones!        
     I had an opportunity to do a little pre-picking today and these berries are dee-licious! I hope to see you all out here Saturday so you can get some of these sweet things for yourselves! They will also be available this weekend at the farmer's market.





   This farm, the Lone Pine, doesn't just grow strawberries. It also has a greenhouse full of flowers and vegetables, which are also planted in the gardens. They include tomatoes, peas, rhubarb and corn. The fences you see in this picture are set up between the rows of peas to help them grow and to make it easier to harvest them. It might be a pain to set up (that's the first thing I did today) but it's worth it to bring in a good harvest!
