Subject: Sharing strawberry plants

Does anyone in the Vacaville/Sacramento area have an interest in sharing orders of strawberry plants? Typically, the plants are cheaper when they come in boxes of 1000. A couple farms are interested in sharing orders to hopefully get us to multiples of 1000. We were going to order Albion from Lassen Canyon Nursery for delivery in mid-February for a second, spring planting, but if you would be interested in this for the future as well, please contact me!

Subject: Tractor-mounted flamer

Hi,

Does anyone in the Yolo/Solano region have a larger scale flamer for weed control, ie. one that can be mounted on a tractor? We would be interested in renting one this fall.

Thanks!

Subject: Landscape fabric?

Does anybody know where to get landscape fabric locally (to north California)? I called Shaw's fabrics and got a quote for Lumite, but it comes from Georgia and freight is expensive. I emailed Extenday but I haven't heard back from them. Thank you!

Try G&M, it's in AZ, they probably not going to ship from CA but they are normally much cheaper than the rest of the farm vendors so it still comes cheaper

Subject: Gopher/ground squirrel/rabbit specialist?

I heard of a gopher/rodent specialist in the Bay area/northern california who was at EcoFarm last year, but can't remember their company name and now can't find them online. Does anyone know of a company that specializes in trapping rabbits, gophers, ground squirrels? We have some owl boxes and have trapped some gophers, but aren't that good at it. Thank you!!

Em; Not sure if your up for this…however….go to you-tube and look for ' rodenator'. See if you can handle this. Some of the good -ole- boys would probably get a kick outta this. Some….well…they just might be desperate for an effective tool. So…its up to you. j

Does anybody know of a good place to buy liners to pack peaches in reusable crates? Ideally, I'd like to find a liner that is somewhat close to 14" by 21" and has "pockets" built in for the peaches to sit in. The cardboard kind that have an indentation for each peach so they don't roll around. Thank you!

Hi Emma,

We use the super-thin plastic liners and get them from Reynolds Packaging in Santa Rosa. There are numerous sizes, based on how many pieces of fruit fit in the box. Reynolds delivers to lots of farms over here every week. 707-575-9884. They may have cardboard ones instead as they also do lots of cardboard packaging.

Does anyone know of any commercial kitchens in the Sebastopol area, for rent by the hour?

the kitchen at the occidental community center used to be certified, and was available for rent. same for monte rio community center. the sebastopol center for the arts also has a kitchen for rent, though unsure if it's certified for commercial use.
