Answers to frequently asked questions:
- Our high tunnels were the plastic covered structures you saw near the strawberry patch. These tunnels are not greenhouses, because they don't have any supplemental heat. They are 100% powered by the sun and simply trap daytime heating to extend the growing season. We're growing tomatoes inside the high tunnels currently.
- The field next to the strawberry patch will be our U-Pick sunflower patch. The sunflowers were planted recently and will be blooming in late June through July. We will also have 1-acre field of zinnia flowers this summer near our blueberries.
- U-Pick strawberry season will continue through early June. U-Pick Blueberries, Sunflowers and Zinnias will begin in Mid-June. U-Pick Peaches are in August and U-Pick Apples and Pumpkins in Sept/Oct. Lots of U-Pick opportunities ahead this season! Stay tuned for updates on Facebook and our website.
- You may find a few white fibers within your strawberries. Don't be alarmed, these come from the fiber covers that we use to protect strawberries from freeze/frost conditions. See images below:
