Rebecca's Strawberries

Yesterday while in Gladstone we discovered Walmart still had some strawberries. (no one else has had any for several weeks).  So, my 3 strawberry plants now have some friends.  Rebecca promptly claimed the strawberry bed as her project, and planted them and watered them for me.

 I doubt, since it is almost the end of June, that we get any this year.  If we do, she will probably enter them in the gardening portion of the 4H fair.  It is next month with the small animal shows, as to do it in June with the projects is too earlier for gardeners.

For her effort, I gave her some Science time (as we discussed how strawberries reproduce by spreading runners), and some life skills vo-tech time.
