I ordered 100 strawberry plants, before I realized I would need to allocate one square foot per seedling. So, they’re not going to fit in my garden, or – as I had originally planned – in my hoop house area.

My first thought was to sell half, which would help. But my father-in-law doesn’t appear too crazy about that idea. I think he thinks it’s impossible to have too many strawberries – a sentiment I think I share. So, I’ll be preparing a new, 12 x 12 foot bed on the hill above the house, near the raspberries, blueberries, cherries, and loganberries.

The thing is: as much as I examine myself, I can’t decide if I ordered so many by accident, or with intention!
