At the beginnning




Yes, it all started with having to get the big tractor and the post hole digger to dig four holes for the strawberry arbor.   The holes were at least 3 feet deep.  It will be amazing if we can get the strawberries to grow and survive and then have them dangling down above our heads.  The hubby saw an idea for the strawberry beds from Pintrest, but they used house gutters to make the beds instead of wood.  For us the wood is much cheaper!

This is the last week of school and I have done two tests out of four.  Tomorrow is a final and then Friday will be my final test and hopefully by next week I will know for sure how well I did.  I anxiously look every day to see how well I did on the test but so far no grades have been posted.

My husband tells me to quit worrying and that I am going to do fine and it is what it is.  Easier for him to say and harder for me not to worry.

Hope everyone is having a good week.

I didn't know that strawberries could dangle down from anything. They are not vine-like in growth pattern. I can't wait to see this project!!

How fun!
