It is beginning to feel like summer is on the way here with temperatures near 90F this last week. The strawberry patch (almost 2 acres) is in great condition. There are three varieties, which help us spread the flushes of fruit. Having consistent fruit is not the easiest task. When you come to one of our Strawberry Days, you will be able to see that each week the flavor and sweetness changes. The varieties respond to the weather differently. So we offer you a flight of berries to taste.
Strawberry Days on the Farm are on Sunday, May 1st; Sunday, May 8th; Saturday, May 21st; Saturday, May 28th.
We have a wonderful strawberry crop so please go to our website, www.eatwell.com/events and signup as soon as possible. There will be tours of the farm by myself and Jose. Make a great day of it and bring a picnic or order a farm lunch. If you have any question please call, text or email: (707)999-1150 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The strawberries in your harvest share this week will be packed into the recyclable clams. In the past, we have used green plastic baskets. We have had significant problems with these, as the plastic cuts the fruit and causes breakdown of the fruit. No one wants moldy fruit. We pick delicious, fully ripe fruit. That is why ours has such great flavor as well as being sweet. Please put them in your recycling bin. Unfortunately we cannot reuse them as they do not clean easily.
