I finally gave in and decided that my strawberry patch was a goddamn clusterfuck, and that it needed to be wrangled with extreme prejudice. So that’s what I started to do this weekend. I don’t have a before photo (no one wants to see that), but here it is partway through.
I’m making part of it raised with cinderblocks, hacking a paver path through the middle, and leaving the part close to me in the photo in-ground. The patch is chronically full of thistles and spiders, so we’re not having any of that silliness anymore. Anyone have better luck with strawberries than I do?
