Outside Work

I continued working outside on my rhubarb patch today. I had a ton of weeds to pull out yet (actually, I had to get the shovel & dig most of them out). And, it's hot out there today! So, I am beat. I think I'm going to keep this post short and try to take a nap today while the children are sleeping.

We also drove up the road to a nearby roadside stand where I know the lady always sells different flowers & plants. I wanted a few things for an outside planter I have...and I felt like the boys needed a change of scenery.

Edison saw that she was selling strawberry plants 3 for $1. He BEGGED me to buy some. Edison is my garden boy. He always has been fascinated with planting things and watching them grow. He especially loves strawberries. My father in law has strawberries in his garden and we always have to keep a close eye on Edison because he will pick them as soon as he sees them...when they are still green.

I guess I'll need to figure out a spot where we can start our own strawberry patch. I didn't buy the plants for him today but at that price I can buy a dozen and let him tend his little patch. Now, how to explain to him that he won't actually have any strawberries until next summer!


  1. I haven't had a garden of any kind in several years, but I've decided to do tomatoes, sugar snap peas and brussels sprouts. Just a small patch on the south side of the house. Hmmm, maybe I should do some strawberries too...

  2. Keep in mind that strawberries spread....
