I have now planted my ginger, some lettuce, and have 64 strawberry plants coming up. Since it could still freeze (It snowed and sleeted early Thursday morning, but was gone by noon) I put a not too thick layer of straw over them. My plants inside are coming up as well too, and should be ready to transplant outside at their proper time. I have some volunteer onions and garlic coming up (due to the mild winter, and 2 heads of cabbage).
It appears my blueberries made it, so I will try and add a couple more bushes this year, as well as more grapes in the orchard.
|My helper. In her feline mind, the only reason I filled the wagon with straw was strictly for her lounging pleasure....When I would go to pull some out, she would try and hold it down with her paws....|
|Strawberry bed after it was covered with straw. We could easily get more snow, ice or another freeze.|
