With the rain, and the rain, plus the thunderstorms, unexpected downpours, not a lot has been happening in the garden other than the routine slug hunts, but all is not lost. Now that it’s drier (for the day), I’ll be making up the time creating a strawberry pyramid. Here’s the plan, and we’ll see how well it holds up over the season. I may have to plant something other than strawberries, since they are fruiting now – but companion plants can be harvested and the transplants will be moved after June:
Create a “pyramid” out of double corrugated boxes (banana boxes), add the irrigation, fill with soil (from the old garden, or you could buy/make your own mix), fill around the sides of the boxes to keep the soil in place, then plant. More pictures to follow – no hieroglyphs: they take too long.
