Inspired to Weed the Strawberries

Mawmaw got busy weeding our strawberry patch on her last visit which prompted us all to pitch in and get the whole bed taken care of. We tilled between the rows, and we pulled up the grass and weeds around the plants. Then we mulched the bed with straw. We'll be purchasing some row covers soon so that when the plants put on their delicate blooms they'll have some protection from late frosts. Lord willing, our CSA customers will have some delicious all-natural, chemical-free strawberries in their baskets come June.
