Tomato hornworm caterpillar
Found these guys on out Thai Pepper plant this morning. These Tomato Hornworm Caterpillars can destroy a crop in as little as 24 hrs. Our pepper plant isn't looking to happy right now
21 days until this flower is a delicious strawberry!
On our hydroponic farm in Valrico we have lots of strawberry plants going in to provide to our produce delivery customers.
Once you see the flowers it takes about 21 days for that flower to turn into fruit. Still at the beginning of bloom stage so it's about another 40 days until we have a ton of strawberries ready for delivery.
Clipping runners off the hydroponically grown strawberry plants. This promotes the production of flowers and ultimately strawberries!
These strawberries were planted about 20 days ago. The plants have been throwing off a bunch of runners which uses up energy. By clipping the runners we are discouraging the plant to put off runners and will end up using the energy stored within the plant to produce flowers which ultimately develop into beautiful strawberries! Currently a couple flowers out there. Well share some pictures of those later
Great looking starters planted from seed
We planted these seeds approximately 2 weeks ago for our produce delivery and stand. Romaine Lettuce, Red Butterhead Lettuce, Leaf Mix Lettuce, kale, collars, and broccoli.

Blueberries incorporated into a landscape!
Best idea ever! Incorporating blueberries into a lawn care customers landscape!
