Asparagus harvest is going strong, and goes until early June. These are nice thick spears, and I snap asparagus off where it breaks easily, so almost the entire spear is tender and usable. Asparagus is sold harvested for $2.78 per pound + tax. Phone 620-597-2450 to order asparagus, and leave a message on the answering machine.

Strawberries should ripen about May 10 to 31, and are sold pick-your-own only, by appointment only. Picking strawberries will be harder this year, due to excess strawberry runners and clover which invaded the strawberry field. The price is the same as last year, $2.55 per quart + tax.
To make an appointment to pick strawberries, phone 620-597-2450 a week or so ahead, and leave a message on the answering machine saying the day and about what time you want to come pick, and how many quarts you want to pick. Also state your phone number (it's not recorded unless you state it). I will get the message and return your call to confirm.
