Straw under the strawberry plants

Strawing the strawberries

We just laid a thick layer of straw under all the strawberry plants so that the developing berries have something soft and mud-free to rest on. 

We use a machine to chop the straw and put it into the row; then we follow behind with a pitchfork, making sure the straw is under the plants and not covering the berries.

Not long now until the season starts! Just two weeks until the first strawberries are ready to pick.Sign up to our newsletter to make sure you don’t miss the fruit season.
