Every October the farm gets ready for the upcoming Strawberry Season. After a long, hot summer, the fields are prepped for our favorite crop: strawberries.
Our strawberry bare root plants are a short-day (winter months) plant variety adapted for west-central Florida growers. Growers should plan on watering daily for first 10-12 days. Other than the watering, when planting bare root plants you need to make sure not to “bury” the crown. It’s the little “nodule” type thing holding the branches before the roots. This part has to stay above ground level in order for the plant to survive. Yes, the leaves will die out after planting. This allows the plant to grow the root system, which in turn allows the plant to grow new leaves.
Bare root plants are sold in bunches of 25 plants for $7.49. Get yours today before they are all gone! To reserve yours, give us a call at 813-752-0502.
Our farm-fresh conk peas and black-eyed peas are available now! The recent rain had put us behind schedule, but now our peas can be found at the market Tuesday to Sunday from 9 am to 6 pm.
If you are looking for conk or blackeyed peas, we have both already shelled in five pound bags (1/2 bushel) for $18.99. Our peas are picked and shelled daily, so you’ll be sure to get the freshest peas available in town.
Our conk and blackeyed peas are hand selected and shelled daily for maximum freshness. If you are looking to purchase more than three bags at a time, we ask that you please give us a call at 813-752-0502 so we can have them ready for you when you come in. We have plenty, we just want them to be the freshest they can be.
Are you in love with the current succulent trend? But don’t know how or what to do? No worries. We are here for you. We’ve jumped on the bandwagon too and hosted a Succulent Terrarium DIY Workshop last month in our greenhouse. It was so much fun! You can join our next event June 9th.
With our large selection of succulent and cacti plants, the group had a blast creating their very own glass jar succulent terrarium. We provided the glass jars, stones, dirt, moss and plants for their beautiful creations.
Throughout the event, people mingled, enjoyed free refreshments and discussed their love for succulents. A succulent plant care guide was provided to all attendees free of charge.
Our next Succulent Terrarium DIY event will be Saturday, June 9th starting at 10 am. Plan on spending about an hour to put together your very own succulent terrarium. We are offering two choices this time: large glass cloche bell jar and a medium glass cloche bell jar. Fill it up with any choice of our beautiful succulents. Make your magic. You are the director on this creation. We provide the supplies. You provide the imagination.
