Then comes the freeze...

Half our strawberry patch is now full! 8 ever-bearing strawberry plants...4 are Ozark Beauties and 4 are Quinalt. The other half of the bed will be planted with June-bearing berries.

Of course, I didn't listen closely to the forecast and we've had a week of overnight freezes...starting the night I planted the strawberries. I'm pretty sure they can handle it, but I haven't been taking chances...covering them up each evening. Also blanketing my peonies and pretty tulips...hoping not to loose the first good year of peony blooms since I've moved them around.

Plueeeze come back Spring!!!!!
