Strawberry: Learn 10 Fun Facts

The strawberry is a delicious and well sought after perennial fruit. Every year 94 percent of Americans buy and consume the red berry. In the US. 80% of all strawberries consumed come from California.

The strawberry is in the family of the rose and has over 200 seeds on the outside of the fruit. It is the only fruit to ripen in the spring and contains only 4 calories. There is a museum in Belgium that is just for the strawberry.

I took the kids in early May to the Wild Things Farm, and we picked our own berries. We learned a lot that day about the strawberry and where our food comes from.  If you have a you pick fruit CSA in your area, we highly recommend you take kids to one, they will love it.

Guffa Luffa – Seed Give Away – The Ultimate Gourd

We picked up some Luffa Gourd Seeds from the Fort Smith Lawn and Garden Show. I planted them thinking they were just your average gourd seeds that you can make bird houses out of. After researching them I realized that these seeds are more special than I originally thought.

The luffa gourd can be dried out and use the inside to clean dishes, your skin, grill, or any surface that you can SOS pad on. The luffa gourd is biodegradable and environment friendly.

We will contact you after one week thru YouTube’s PM System to notify that you where to send a SSE.

Good Luck

This garden update video was shot on summer solstice 2013. I had a few technical difficulties with the video so sorry for the late upload. I show off my Carolina reapers, my cucumber beetle issues. My greenhouse is kicking the garden into full gear this June. My potatoes are popping up great. I am getting a little blossom end rot around the garden but I am using lime and Azomite to try to correct the issues. All in all the garden is doing awesome this year.

Today we discuss the importance of picking and purchasing high quality tools for your garden. When you purchase inexpensive be forwarned that you will probably have to buy them again the following season. By doing your homework and little research online you can find gardening reviews for the right tools for the job. In the end don’t buy cheap, buy quality and your gardening season will have less hiccups.
