First Fruits of the Season
Jake decided to water the plants once he scraped away the weeds from the base and discovered a couple green berries. Yep! A humble little crop from four strawberry plants that were completely neglected since the fall and watered through a dilapidated soaker hose network pieced and plugged together with screws/washers and electrical tape! Just one deep soak for three hours, great soil, sun and the weeds left intact. Hmmm, maybe I should do something about the last item on the list.
