Nice day today so I began it by doing some gardening. I planted about 20 raspberry plants. There is soooo much grass growing around last years berry vines that it will take me all afternoon to clean them out . I did mulch them when I put them in but since I have put down the black plastic and pebbles that is the only open spaced and the weeds moved right on in. I now have to find the wire and wire up between the poles to support them.
I got the berry vines from a Senior Center plant sale. Someone had lovingly dug them up, cleaned them off, put them in ziplock bags with garden soil and cinched them up. I bought 20 plants or a quarter a piece! I could not have done all that work for .25 a piece.
Then I cleaned around the oldest strawberry box. Lots of runners had established themselves and I pulled them all up and put them in a canning pot (they make great garden pails). I will turn one of the new garden boxes into a strawberry box so I will have three strawberry beds altogether. Should have enough for jam and eating this year!
So many projects so little time! I love this shovel that I bought for $1 at a garage sale. It is from Smith and Harkins. The wagon was from a garage sale too.
