Cabool Old Time Days

The Cabool Farmers Market was invited to set up at the Cabool Old Time Days on Saturday Sept 19. The weather was terrible, drizzling then turning to a light rain. At least there were no heavy downpours. We had a good time anyway.

strawberry tips

We got all the strawberries tipped yesterday. Here is the" CREW".
We set 95,300 tips. That's alot of tips. We tipped Friday, Monday and Tuesday. Our thanks to the crew Teressa, Tamara, Barbara, Taysha, Geri, Sarah, Janelle, Joe, Tim, Jon, Doug, and Jim (who came to see how we do our tipping).
After we get the tips in the tray we put them out on the mat for 28 days under the mist system and wait for them to get roots. After 28 days we plant them in the ground.

Strawberry tips are arriving

We got word this evening that our strawberry tips will be in here in the morning at 6:30 am, so I had to get my crew together on short notice. I had them ready to start tipping on Monday, and only 1 person couldn't make it on Friday. I have such a great crew, they will come in when we need them (even on short notice). We have 91,000 tips to set out. Hopefully we can get it done in about 2 1/2 days.
