We've started planting our 2017 strawberries.
Each year, we like to plant a small amount of several different varieties that are new to us, in addition to our favorites - Earliglow. As long as we're strawberry farmers, the vast majority of our strawberry crop will consist of Earliglow. The little sugar bombs are the gold standard of strawberries, in our opinion, and are always our seasonal staples.
Ever see a single strawberry plant? They are 99% roots with a tiny crown at the top. The lucky ones arrive with maybe one little leaf attached. Planted with care, they are sure to become hearty and productive for the next few years.
