Harvest Strawberries
Both June-bearing and everbearing strawberries are ready
to harvest. As you're picking those plump red jewels, be sure
to remove any berries that show signs of grey mold or rot
diseases. These berries are not edible, and they can quickly
spread the diseases to other ripening fruits. After removing
the rotten berries, mulch under plants with straw to reduce
contact with the ground where the disease spores reside.
Revitalize Strawberry Beds
Renovate older June-bearing strawberry plantings after the harvest is finished. To avoid injuring the crowns, set your lawn mower as high as possible and mow over the beds. Rake up all debris, till under all but an 8 to 10 inch diameter row in the middle, and thin the remaining plants to 6 inches apart.
