First of May and the First Strawberries

Carpenter Organic Greenhouses and Produce have the first very early strawberries at the Market. The available yield is small so you have to get there early.

Here is a close up of the berries being grown. Note the drip irrigation tube.

The variety is "Seascape" a relatively new day neutral variety developed by the University of California at Davis.

Day neutral strawberries produce fruit throughout the growing season. They are great when space is limited, but the fruits are usually somewhat smaller than June bearers.

Here is a shot of the berry patch.


  1. Thank you Glenn, this is a phenomenal help to know where (and how) these are being grown.

  2. The strawberries are good
