With tax season coming to an end, it’s now time to start working on my neglected garden. Task one… Thin out my strawberries. I planted 25 new strawberry plants last spring in my newly constructed pyramid. As you can see they have since exploded to 300+ plants. This picture was taken after removing 60 plants.
I hope to remove about 100-150 more plants in order to obtain maximum berry growth rather than have this many plants produce a bunch of tiny berries. Selling the plants at $6 per 20 plants should help to alleviate a good portion of the costs for the rest of the garden this year.
