Strawberries are in the ground!

We got our new precious strawberry plants into the ground! All 150 of them! Thank you so much to our volunteers, Claire and Corbin for coming out this week to lend a hand. We were blessed with a beautiful warm and sunny day and worked all day amending the soil, building new garden beds, laying out plastic, and planting. We chose to do a raised bed method covered with black plastic in order to minimize the risk of weeds choking out the strawberry plants while they are settling in and establishing themselves in their new home. We look forward to this planting giving us strawberries for the next 2-3 years!
