From the outdoor beds, 4 gallons of strawberries to add to the 15 already picked in the last week or so.


From the hoop house, lettuce, peas (already shelled) and first picking of green beans....more of them to pick, she just got enough for a meal today.

Awesome! Fresh picked strawberries are delicious! How big are the beds to produce 19 gallons of strawberries? Are you going to make some strawberry jam?

Got one bed that runs along the drive into the hoop house....probably 50' long, access is from below the wall, so it's waist high to work/pick. Another similar bed about 60' along the drive into the shop building, same deal....waist high from below.


The wife took the runners from those two beds and planted a couple 100' rows in one of the garden spaces last year.....so all together, about 310' of row. There will likely be another 10-15 gallons come off of them.


She freezes all of them, makes some jam later.


Frost cover over plants.

I would have eaten at least a quart of them before I got to the house.
