I am so excited! The nursery that I shop at in Burson, Rising Sun, finally got in the strawberry plants I have been waiting to plant.
|This is what they look like when you buy them, all roots..|
First I pulled back the straw that has been protecting the bed since I filled it up. Then I made 2 long hills on the outside of the bed with a furrow in the middle.
|Building the hills|
|Laying out the plants|
|Seascape row is done - spacing out the back row|
|All the plants are in and ready to go|
|Cute rows with the watering tube and organic fertilizer - grow babies grow!|
|Covering the plants with straw|
|Bed is covered in straw again to help protect them|
The garlic and onions are doing good as well.. the rain we are getting is just a blessing!
|Garlic growing well!|
|Onions are not as strong as I would like to see - hopefully a few days of warm weather will get them established before the frost hits.|
