Fearless Foodie:

So That's What a Hydroponic Strawberry Looks Like

Just got back from King's Hydrofarm in South Knoxville. Way cool: 15,000 strawberry plants, 26,000 plants in all. The owners are trying to get strawberries producing year 'round, which will be a first in our area if it works out. Meantime, though, they'll be selling strawberries at the F.A.R.M. market at Laurel Church of Christ, which is already geared up on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and U-pick berries should be ready in June (other produce starts in a week or two, just call them to find out.)

Check it out, and check back for an interview with Kim Gray of King's in our April 22 issue:
