I’m told that ever-bearing strawberries are not invasive, so that’s a first for the Church Garden Sale. I got three, and then went back for a fourth, for a grand total of $12.00. Perennials do give a bigger bang for the buck, don’t they?

So, sunniest spot available, in front of the cantaloupes. The soil has never been amended at all, although I covered the area with seafood compost earlier in the spring. Clay-ey and rockey, as expected, but not too compacted, and plenty of worms! So, I dug the holes, and to make them happy in the inferior soil, I put seafood compost in the bottom, and flung in some azomite, green sand, and blood. Then popped in the plants, molded the soil around them, and mulched with straw.

Who knows!
