strawberries

9 posts in this topic

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.
