What a week we’ve had! The big thing we keep talking about is the really cold weather last week. We spent a lot of time fighting to get row covers across the strawberries in the wind to protect them. This week has started off with nice daytime weather with a few chilly nights. I guess dealing with the weather on a daily basis is what we sign up for as farmers!
Here’s what you need to know about this week at Yoders’ Farm.
First, we did work really hard to try to save as many of the strawberry blooms as possible through the cold nights last week. While we weren’t able to save all of them, it looks like we were able to save a bunch of them. (Special thanks to some friends from church who helped us pull covers Saturday evening… it would have been a long night without your help!)
Secondly, we don’t have a firm date for opening the pick-your-own strawberry patch just yet, there are still too many variables in play. Our current “opening estimate” is the one we made a few weeks ago, it will probably be the last week of April till we are able to open the patch for picking.
Thirdly, we do have plenty of fresh, vine ripened, local (from our greenhouses!), hydroponic tomatoes available. If you’d like to come by and pick some up… as always there are also jams and jellies available in the Farm Store.
So… for now, keep stretching your picking fingers for when we do open (we are still earlier than most years), or if you’d like to take a drive out to the country and pick up some tomatoes, come on down, we’d be glad to see you. Current hours are Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. till 5:30 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. till 2 p.m.
