strawberries

Recommended Posts

I have seen alot of people mow their strawberries off after they are done. Is this a do or a dont, or doesn't it make a difference?

I'M an Ag Met so maybe I can help with your ?,try mowing the strawberries down pretty short without cutting the crown away,then till them into rows,also might put together some mulch for Oct/Nov, some very dry straw/hay works pretty good,hope this helps.

Yes I did exactly as Frank said.Mowed them off as soon as they were finished bearing.Then tilled them into rows.I have everbearers and they are once again full of blossoms.

huntingmaxima,

Glad I could help...KEN W,When I was married we lived in Fargo for a while,moved there from Oklahoma.I have been to Mapleton a few times,we looked into moving there when we first were making plans to move to the Fargo area,but we decided the drive into work in Fargo might be a little much in the winter,Heh...Mapleton did seem like a nice little town though...I still get back to the Fargo area sometimes,although it has been a few years since my last visit.

I have lived here for 2 years now.Lived in Bottineau for 35 years and retired here so we could be closer to our family who all live in Minn.

For me it came down to hunting as a resident in ND and fishing as a non-res.in Mn or the other way around.I decided I wanted to be a ND resident hunter so we stayed west of the Red river.

Ken, I hunted Bottineu a few times. A friend of mine went to school with a bunch of guys from up there. Did you hang out at the stadium bar? I remember a guy by the name of Getsloff.

    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
