Strawberry invasion!


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.
