Strawberry patch

Since it was a million degrees outside, we decided to put in a strawberry patch. We're out of room in the garden (which is moving next year) and we wanted a spot just for them that was more permanent.  The railroad ties we got from a neighbor were a great fit.  We leveled and built, then filled with our plentiful free natural fertilizer (ew) and our rock-free (thanks to a LOT of rock removing) topsoil.  (Rock-free in this case just means more dirt than rock. There are a LOT of rocks in this ground!)

This chicken approved.  The very next day, the chickens ate our strawberries, so 1) we need to add netting over it and 2) we're eating more chicken this week!
