Strawberries!

So I just have to share the project that the husband recently completed for me. I wish the pictures did it justice! On the back side of our greenhouse, we had some flat space that got tons of sun. It was a shame to let it go to waste. So, my dear husband made me a strawberry bed using old cinder blocks he had laying around the farm. One plant per cinder block hole. Check it out!

Can’t wait to show you guys pictures when we have some hearty plants and juicy red berries growing back here! We only have 50 plants this year… though if the block thing works out, I will definitely expand next year! Also, I’m using a special blend of soil for all of my plants that Lyle put together for me. It’s a 15% topsoil, 85% compost mix. It’s fine and black and beautiful. More to come on compost later!

    Yum! Nothing beats home-grown strawberries. The kind you get in the store don’t even start to compare.
