Strawberries are sweeter than sweet potatoes!

So, we have about 30 acres of open land that we are evaluating what to do with in the short term. We'll simply be renting it out for a season of course. Options are:
  1. growing sweet potatoes 
  2. strawberry patch (that sells to Plant Sciences). 

We think the strawberry grower shows great promise as a good temporary tenant. They run a very clean operation. They have been renting ground near Lane's house for the last several years so he has seen how they work and maintain the property.

More importantly, strawberry plants would have the advantage of not depleting the soil of potassium to the extent that potatoes do. They also tarp fumigate the soil each year.
