Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Strawberries are about ready for some ice cream and cake...




I've got several little tree seedlings that I need to pull. I put fallen leaves on my Strawberries in the fall instead of straw.
Then I remove most of the leaves in the spring but leave enough to cover the ground. That helps keep out a lot of weeds.
I do the same thing in my tomato garden. The leaves covering the ground helps keep moisture in the soil.


And my Cives and Gooseberries are doing well.

You are fortunate. Between the snails and deer our strawberry plants/berries are devastated.

I ate my first strawberry of the season from my tire strawberry patch, this morning. Somehow, they never make it into the house so I can have them with cake or ice cream.

With all the freezes we've had, I am quite happy I still have live strawberry plants. I just wish I hadn't covered a good portion of them with too much mulch this past winter. Those haven't come back through.

I discovered potato bugs eating my strawberries, this morning. I thought a mouse was getting in and taking bites out of them until I saw those dang bugs. They gave themselves away when I saw a leaf had been eaten, so examined the plants closer.

Nothing a little Sevin dust can't take care of. Easier to get rid of than a mouse, I bet.
