By Sandy Anderson Strawberries Three types of strawber- ries are readily available. June-bearing strawberries produce a large crop in late spring. Everbearing type produce two smaller crops, one in late spring and the second in early fall. The day- neutral plants are capable of producing fruit throughout most of the growing season. Of the three types, June- bearing usually produce the largest yield per season. Strawberries require full sun. Plants that receive at least six hours of sun will grow well but berries will be fewer and the quality will be reduced. Ten or more hours of sunlight each day is ideal. Choose your site carefully. Choose a site located away from trees as they will com- pete for water and nutrients. The soil should be both water-retentive and well- drained as strawberry plants will tolerate neither drought nor standing water. The site you select should be free from weeds, grubs and soil-borne diseases. Because plants such as tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and pota- toes can carry a soilborne disease known as Verticillium Wilt, to which strawberries may be suscep- tible, avoid planting where these plants have been recently grown. Plant in the spring as soon as the soil can be worked. You should trim any dam- aged roots and all flowers, runners and old leaves should be removed. Set the plants with the roots pointed downward and forming a fan. Planting depth is criti- cal. Set the plants deep enough so the midpoint of the crown is even with the soil surface, then firm the soil around the plant and 840 Bedal St., Walnut Grove $42,000 rwty remodeled, 3 bed- rooms, 2 1/2 bath, partial finished basement central air, single detached garage -Lowered price 1375 260th St., $J$0,000 5 114 A.

For June-bearing plants: during the spring of plant- rag, remove all flowers as they appear to allow the plant to put energy into developing a healthy root system and vigorous run- ners. Make sure your straw- berries receive an inch of water a week; try to water early in the day so foliage is dry before evening to pre- vent leaf diseases. Mulch may help keep the soil tem- perature cooler for the plants as well as preserving the soil moisture and help with the weed control. Keep all weeds out of the straw- berry bed. Handweeding is recommended because of the shallow roots on strawber- ries. There are some selec- tive products for grass. Grass B Gone works well to control grass in the bed. An application of 10-10-10 fer- tilizer early each season and another shortly after har- vest is good for optimum pro- duction. After harvest is completed each year, mow off the foliage of the plants using a lawnmower but tak- ing care not to damage the crowns of the plants. This will help control leaf disease and stimulate runner pro- duction. Winter protection is sug- gested. After 2 or 3 frosts have hardened off the plants, cover them with 4-6 inches of straw. Snow is arl excellent insulator if you receive enough. Mulch should be removed in the spring when growth begins, but may be left between rows to act as the summer mulch. For everbearing and day- neutral types, all flowers should be removed until July 1, after which time the plants are allowed to flower and set fruit. For maximum productivity, replace the planting every 3 years. Insect pests that are com- mon in strawberry" plantings are the strawberry clipper that clips off flower buds in spring, reducing harvest, the tarnished plant bug that feeds on the flowers shortly after bloom, causing nub- bins to develop, and the black picnic beetle that you find in overripe strawber- ries. It's hard to beat a home grown, red-ripened straw- berry.
