Garden update 5/28/17 & 5/30/17

5/28/17 -
I didn't  tend to my garden this season because all my time was spent with my new puppy! My new obsession. With all the rain early in the spring I didn't have the time to come and clear out my garden, so when I finally did, I looked at it in horror and decided it was time to give it up. I had already paid for the season, but I thought I'd give it up for someone else to take care of and take over for a free season.
 5/28/17 - But leaving a mess just isn't me!  So I came back to weed it out. I spent two hours in the afternoon of my birthday pulling out all the weeds in my garden that accumulated from last fall!  Great start of the day ^_^
5/30/17 - A couple days later I came back to cover it so no new weeds grow this summer. I left the strawberry bed uncovered and moved the strawberries that flowed onto the path and started to grow there, then put them in the bare spot, so hopefully they survive and take root. My plan is for them to fill out the plot.  
 5/30/17 - So now I'll hold on to the plot all summer so I can harvest all the amazing little strawberries that have already started to grow! 
 5/30/17 - Maybe if it keeps well I'll hold on to it until I have more time to do more with it. My plan is to start a smaller 10' x 5' garden in my back yard, so we'll see how that goes ^_^
