Potatoes out, strawberries in:)
I saw an ad on craigslist where a lady was giving away her overgrown strawberries and called her. She lives in a subdivision in Orting and we made arrangements to go get them last night. When we got there, we could see that the strawberry lady had the nicest garden in the subdivision and she kindly showed us which ones we could take. The ad said she had hundreds of plants, but she wasn’t really being forthright: she had thousands. We took a garden cart load and left the rest for the next lucky craiglist customer.
We decided that the strawberries should go in a raised bed near the house so that we can baby them. Billy really likes strawberries, but we haven’t done too well with them in the past because slugs always ate all the berries. Now we have slug eating duckies, so we want a big bed of strawberries.
