It’s the Berries! (2012 garden, part 1)
On a chilly Bay State February morning, snow flurries grayed the sky. Also, some guy dumped a huge box on my doorstep. I had been expecting the corrugated metal strips, the bird net, the frost cover, and some “free gift” seeds and bulbs. I was not expecting the 50 bare-root Ozark Beauty strawberry crowns. After a call to the company, I placed my delicate little berrylings in a cabinet in my basement laundry room. Two and a half months later, I dug this pit.
One month after that, my darling husband (who has two green thumbs and eight green fingers!) planted the stringy brown crowns. Two weeks later this happened. HOORAY! We have strawberries on the way.
So…anyone have a suggested use for a pile of rocks?
