Our berry good garden

Our plants continue to arrive. I’ve got to admit that sometimes it is a little weird to think that my plants are coming in the mail…but it works. I actually like that I can do research online, look for what I want, and see them arrive at my door when the right time for planting has arrived rather than going to nurseries and settling for the inventory at the time. Nuestras plantas siguen llegando. Tengo que admitir que a veces es extraño pensar que mis plantas vienen en el correo…pero funciona. La verdad es que me gusta el hecho de poder investigar, buscar lo que quiero, y ver las plantas llegar a mi casa sin tener que ir a un vivero donde dependo de la selección que hay en ese momento.

This time, we got strawberries in the mail! We are really excited about growing strawberries – especially Leslie, since she eats them every day with her yogurt. This will be our first time growing strawberries and we’re hoping we get a good yield. We bought 26 day neutral plants and they’ll live in one of our 4 x 8 beds. I was really curious about how these plants are shipped – they came in bare-root and in good condition in a tiny little package. I keep expecting the packages to be bigger, but they are baby plants, after all. Esta vez llegaron las frutillas por correo! Estamos muy emocionados de poder tener frutillas – especialmente Leslie, ya que ella come frutillas todos los días con su yoghurt. Esta será la primera vez que tendremos frutillas y esperamos que nos de buenos frutos. Compramos 26 plantas, neutrales y vivirán en una jardinera de 4 x 8 pies. Tenia la curiosidad de la condición en que las frutillas serian enviadas – llegaron con la raíces expuestas y en buenas condiciones en un pequeñito. Yo esperaba un paquete mas grande, pero son plantas jóvenes después de todo.

Planting the strawberry plants was easy, especially since I had already prepared the bed’s soil months ago. I had to cut the roots to about 3 inches long, dig a hole big enough to spread the roots, leave the crown of the plant at soil level, pack the dirt just a bit , and water. Now it is up to them to grow big and bear some tasty berries! Plantar frutillas fue fácil, especialmente después de haber preparado la tierra en la jardinera con anticipación un par de meses atrás. Tuve que cortar las raíces a un largo de 3 pulgadas, hacer un hoyo lo suficientemente grande para esparcir las raíces, dejar a corona de la planta nivel de suelo, afirmar la tierra un poco, y regarlas. Ahora depende de ellas para crecer grande y que nos de muchas frutillas!
