A home garden needs a large strawberry patch
If you want to pick a punnet or two.
Annually I clean up this patch trying to leave a few strong plants
for the next season.
This year I have picked many strawberries
but not many make it back up to the house.
I sell plants at the market for $3.00each
The last two market most of the plants were dripping with fruit
but I only sold two plants.
The drought has taught gardeners that summer is the toughest time to
plant things in this climate.
That heat wave was ridiculous, 4 days in a row over 40...
Then we get the arctic blast and have struggled to get
over 20 for a week...cold and windy...strange
and a reminder that summer will not last forever and winter is creeping up on us.
I do prefer summer.
The year is off to a good start, I have had night classes over the summer
and Uni is about to start again. I got a few extra hours on the work clock
teaching drawing to first year Uni students.
That should be fun.
After school pottery starts tonight, Parent and child night.
Children $15.00 parents free.
Nice to see this combination being creative together.
