First Outdoor Planting

The sun broke through late this afternoon, drawing us all outside for work and play. It's incredible how motivating a little bit of light and heat can be after a few days of clouds and chilly weather.

After supper, we took advantage of the lingering sunshine to set out some strawberries. This year we have rotated them from the north garden to the southwest garden. We think the plants will have greater success in this garden's rich, loamy soil. It was such a joy to be outside working together. In about an hour, we had 200 strawberry plants nestled snugly in their new beds.
