Our strawberries were lousy this year. The fruits were puny, bland, and few and far between. I couldn’t even harvest enough to make a single batch of strawberry jam—and I know why: Our strawberry patch needs a makeover.
One of the crops I am most looking forward to growing from seed for the first time this year is ground cherries. I first tasted them a few years ago while visiting a friend’s farm.
Last week brought some beautiful weather, and so despite the boot cast on my left leg, I made the most of it by heading out to the raspberry patch to do a little cleanup.
