Strawberries Coming Soon!

Standard

My neighbor across the street from me is a big gardener.  They’re the ones that have the chickens I babysat last summer.  She was cleaning up her strawberry patch & called  me to see if I wanted some of her plants.  I said heck yeah but I wasn’t ready.  I don’t have any of my garden beds built yet.  She said no problem and brought me over her wheelbarrow full of dirt, a bed to borrow & about 60 plants!!  I ran to Home Depot Sunday to get a few bags of topsoil and got them all planted.  For now, I just put the bed in the middle of my future garden area.  Eventually, I want to take the top 1/2 of the metal off this area (about 4′ high) all around the garden and put up lattice to let more sunshine in.  This area right next to the barn is where the past owners kept their dog.  I’ll put my garden beds here, add some crushed gravel, a walkway and a gate.  I added an outdoor light and concrete pad last year right off the door to the barn that goes into my “garden room”.  That’s my “outside” goal anyway for this spring/summer, to get the garden area up and running.  I’m so exited to have strawberry plants – hopefully I’ll have enough to make some homemade strawberry jam!! 😉
