Now is the time to plant the new strawberry crowns that will produce those wonderful and delicious berries next Spring. We borrowed this neat little tool to punch holes in the plastic mulch from Pablito at Terra Firma Farm In Winters. we also borrowed his crew to plant the crop as we had so much to do and no time to spare.
A drip line is placed in the middle of the two lines of punched holes. The straw is there to make harvest a more pleasant task next spring and to keep weeds under control.
