I have a garden. Sort of. I plant things, and they grow, but I don’t do much cultivating. It’s survival of the fittest in my yard. I have a lot of berries, because (1) I like them, and (2) they’re pretty easy to grow, and (3) they’re fun for my kid. Unfortunately, reason #3 can lead to problems. Like, when Hannah picks and takes a bite out of the very green strawberry she saw me admiring.
My strawberry patch isn’t large, and the first crop is just starting to grow. I recently planted a few more, but it will be a while before they yield any reward.
To fully appreciate the travesty, here is the half-eaten strawberry beside the next-biggest one in the patch.
Luckily, the raspberries are coming along nicely.
The blueberries are in full flower, and looking promising as well.
And, of course, I have a bumper crop of weeds. See how healthy and vigorous they are?
