Buenos días, my friends
Diego, the Dixie Chile Ranch Vaquero here.
We’ve just received our blueberry plants:Tiffblue, Briteblue and Climax varieties, and they’ll be getting planted in the next couple of days.
So will our triple crown blackberries, and we’re looking forward to sweet and succulent blueberries and blackberries in the years to come.
Here’s a photo so you can see we’ve plowed the large garden area where the majority of our varieties of chiles will be planted, along with bell peppers, tomatoes, beans (Roma and Blue Lake), purple hull peas, cucumbers, potatoes, eggplants, and other vegetables.
Our local strawberry farmer is fertilizing and watering in anticipation of a late April harvest, so keep your eyes here as to the first sell date for strawberries for the 2013 growing season. As we say around here, “Pueden nuestras frutas y verduras llevar alegría a tu mesa.” (May our fruits and vegetables bring joy to your dining table.)
