Crop 101: Asparagus

asparagus 28 We have 3 acres of Asparagus on the farm. Our oldest patch was planted in 2000. Our newest patch was planted in 2015, and includes the first purple asparagus we’ve ever grown.  We will only harvest a few spears from the new patch this year.  We want it to have a good strong foundation, and picking too much will stress the plants and possibly decrease future production. Asparagus is one of the very few vegetables that is a perennial, which means we harvest from the same plants for many years, instead of planting new plants each year. We begin harvesting asparagus as soon as the first spears emerge from dormancy (begin poking out of the ground) in the spring – this can be anywhere from early to late April depending on how warm the spring is. Even though it requires an intense amount of labor (all asparagus is harvested by hand), we are dedicated to harvesting our asparagus daily.  When it is really warm, asparagus can grow up to 1 inch per hour so we will harvest it twice in one day! Our strict harvest schedule prevents the asparagus from becoming tough and the tips from ferning out; many folks have said Read More...

Strawberry Update

strawberries qStrawberries have been slowly (I mean slowwwlyyy) ripening. They have been suffering from a major lack of sunlight and heat.  And all the rain has not helped either. Many customers have asked us over the past couple of weeks if we were picking any berries yet, and our response has been, "No.  And we're glad they're not ready yet!" Sounds crazy, I know.  But here is why. Strawberries do not like wet and cloudy weather.  The sweetness of a strawberry is directly related to how much sunlight there is while it is ripening.  If the berry is ripening during cloudy rainy days, it will be pumped up with a lot of water and not much sugar, so the flavor will be lackluster. Also, the rain and cloudiness cause lots of disease problems with strawberries, especially grey mold (also known as Botrytis).  And water saturated strawberries tend not to store very long once they are picked.  So you can see why we were glad not to be picking strawberries during that three week period of clouds and rain. So far, the strawberries we have picked look shiny and bright, have very little grey mold, and have good flavor. And after this week's ideal growing Read More...

Saying Goodbye to Glover Park Farmers Market

Glover Sometimes we have to make the hard decision to leave a farmers market. We don't take the decision lightly, because we've grown to love the customers who shop with us each week. But when evaluating our market schedule from a business standpoint, there are times when we realize that we don't have the capacity to continue to serve a market. So we were pretty sad to make the decision not to return to the Glover Park market this year. We've come to the conclusion that the market can realistically only financially support one fruit vendor, and Spring Valley has attended the market since its early stages. Thank you to the all the loyal Glover Park customers who shopped with us over the past two years; we will miss you! And we hope that we might see some of you at the Palisades farmers market on Sundays - which is only about a 10 minute drive from Glover Park!
