Picking Report

Out of Dormancy

Our website, like our plants has been dormant all winter. 

The strawberries are starting to green up, the blackberry buds are swollen, and we are getting outside again to do farm work.   

4-1-14 Projections of Crops (my best guess at this time):

Strawberries:  Late May/June is my best guess right now.  It was, of course, a brutal winter.  We have a lot of damage, and the plants are slow to come out dormancy this spring (since we haven't really had any spring weather).  The high tunnel strawberries didn't make it, so no early berries.  We'll go with a standard Missouri outdoor strawberry crop in June.  They don't call them June-bearers for nothing.

Raspberries:  We should have a small spring crop in June on the outdoor berries and an outdoor and high tunnel crop in the fall in late Septbember/early October. 

Blackberries:  Late spring means blackberries around the 4th of July.  Then 10 weeks of crop.  We had 15,000 lbs last year.  We expect a smaller crop due to damage, but are still thinking 10,000 lbs which is enough for everyone and then some.
