Hmmm… I don’t think I will be planting anything today.
My hillbilly neighbors were about to take three shelving units to the landfill when I drove by and asked if I could have them. They were happy to get rid of them and to not pay fee to throw them away. If I didn’t want something, I ‘d either put it in the garage sale box or donate it so I wouldn’t have to pay to get rid of it. But hey, I’m crazy frugal like that.
I felt bad just taking the 4 shelves so I gave them some of the beef from my freezer and a giant fish net I had picked up for FREE along side the road last summer. The little hillbillies plan on using it to build a fort. What a great barter.
The 150 bare root strawberry plants I ordered finally arrived last night. I chose a June bearing variety so they will come on all at once and we can make jam. Monkey Boy loves his strawberry jam. I think we are down to the last jar from the 2008 harvest, so the timing was perfect.
Giant clumps of 25 bare root strawberries in each package.
I sorted, separated, and sprinkled them with a little water before planting.
Strawberries planted and ready to grow. Hopefully by the summer’s end this garden box will be covered in green and red!
