Strawberry Picking near Appleton Wisconsin.
Hello Friends of the Farm! Well everyone, it looks to be a late spring, what a snowstorm this was, historical. Our best indications from the total snowfall is to be over 30” of snow with some drifts as high as 15′ to 20′. We just need to wait and see how long it takes all of it to melt. Strawberry picking at the Farm probably won’t be until the later part of June, unless of course we get some extreme hot weather. Just a patient waiting game we guess for Strawberry Picking near Appleton Wisconsin.
Our Fresh Tender Asparagus Countdown is well under way, only 9 days left?? We hope to have yummy Asparagus available the beginning of May at the Farm Store. Organic Lettuce will also be available that is grown in our high tunnel. We all just need to be a bit patient yet. Soon the Farm will be free of snow and come alive, the frost will be out, and planting season will finally be here. Better late than never, Right! I’m sure everyone is suffering from cabin fever and just wanting winter to end.
