New Strawberry Bed
I got a bunch of extra strawberry starts from my in-laws. Since most of my garden was already planted, I decided to start a new bed just for strawberries. I already had a patch of wild strawberries and had planted a couple starts in a tire, but these are especially cold hardy so they get a fresh patch. I was going to till up an old pig pen and plant them there, but it needed a lot of rehab to keep the animals out and it would require new hoses to get water to it. Instead, I dug up a patch where an old fire pit was, pounded in some stakes and wrapped it with scrap chicken wire.
I added a sign I made for motivation.
And it seems to be working! My shallots, bok choi and radishes are going gangbusters and I have cucumbers coming up.
My lone artichoke continues on…
