Stawberries!

ORIGINALLY POSTED TO THE TGP FORUM ON JULY 6, 2010.

Soooooo, the sun has finally decided to come outside and play and the strawberries have followed!  I never knew that strawberry fruit literally grew out of the flower of the strawberry plant.  The strawberries from my garden are small, deep red, and delicious.  My other plants are coming along well, also.

I haven’t seen any evidence of the mole that lives in my garden, and hopes that s/he has moved on.  So far, my little garden has been easy to maintain.  I water my plants when I get off work in the morning (around 6 am/6:30ish), and pull any weeds that are trying to grow near them.  I also clip any yellow leaves (a tip from my garden coach, ScottWink).

I’m a little worried that raccoons will eat my veggies when they start to mature, as we some very active raccoons in my neighborhood.  When I was a child, I used to leave cucumbers, carrots, and potato salad in my backyard for them, and I’d eventually witness them eating what I left.  I wonder if there is any sure-fire way to keep pests away (moles included).  Hmmmm….
