Strawberry Update

Sunday, April 23, 2006
Our strawberries are coming along nicely. The rain we had yesterday and today will be great for them.

On Thursday, I saw one of my gardening neighbors, Brad, who has the plot to the west of ours. He's growing sorrel, garlic, and blueberries. He said his wife really likes sorrel and, since it cooks down quite a bit, he planted lots of it.

In his plot, he has a big bale of straw that he's been using for mulch. He offered me some, since he probably won't use the whole bale. I graciously accepted and put some around our strawberry plants, to keep the berries up and out of the mud. Here's a photo of how it looks. Those are our spinach plants in the foreground.
