Strawberry Beds

Due to me not reading how to take care of strawberries, I had to move my strawberry bed out of the garden( you can’t plant Strawberries anywhere near where you planted Tomatoes or Potatoes, I am thinking of doing one of two things. The first being instead of having flower’s in my flower beds, to plant my strawberries or to make strawberry beds like these  I have plenty of nice scrap wood to make them with and getting dirt might be a little hard, but I could go get several loads of horse manure from people I know that have horses.   If I make the round beds I would most likely put them in my turn around in the middle and then plant flower’s between them or on either sides, I would only need about four of the beds.   I love strawberries and I really would like to have dedicated beds for each type of strawberry I want.

Between the goat and the kids, I might not have a garden left.

I took the chance to go outside and work in the garden, while it was sunny and before the predicted rain hit, I am not so sure that was a good idea.   The kids left the gate open to the porch, where I have container’s with Strawberries, Chives, Mint, Sage and Oregano.   The goat being the silly(my kids get upset when I call it DUMB) thing that it is ate all the strawberries and all my herbs and that included the two that had blossoms, the kids then proceded to bring it into the garden where it ate the top’s off the pea’s, that were finally recovering from the last time they ate the tops off.  I have told the kids, at least 100 times, if the gate is closed they need to close it back and that the garden and porch is off limits to the goat.  On top of which, I have this nifty little tool for weeding between the row’s and my youngest(4 1/2) too the thing to the row of spinach that was just barely up, I think I was able to save most of what was already up.  We will just have to wait and see if the pea’s and the spinach makes it, this is why I always plant more than I need, so that if something happens I still get something.

 I’ll be lucky if I get anything out of my garden at this rate.
