The Slowcook at Spydog Farm The Slowcook at Spydog Farm

My wife planted three 8-foot rows of strawberries last year and now we are harvesting buckets of strawberries.

In fact, we can’t eat them fast enough. Most are going into the freezer.

My genius spouse selected varieties that will keep us in berries till fall. There’s Earliglow, which, as the name implies, starts making berries in spring. Cavendish is an “early mid-season” bearer. Then there’s Mara des Bois, a so-called ever-bearing strawberry that labors on through the end of summer.

Still, the strawberry expert is not satisfied. She intends to plant additional rows with additional varieties that will fill any gaps in the calendar that might exist. In other words, excepting those months when the farm is covered in snow, we will be eating strawberry shortcake till our stomachs burst.

But wait! Since we have all those frozen strawberries, there’s no reason we can’t pig out on them all winter long.
