After an eventful afternoon with the honey bees, I set off to build a few strawberry beds out of some rocks from our little rock pile.
Here's where all the fun starts...strawberry beds.
Some of our strawberry plants have started fruiting. We are pretty happy to see them.
These strawberries are loving their new, spacious private quarters.
We've got all sorts of things starting in our strawberry containers. We hope to get most of these in the ground before school gets out for the summer.
It's not just strawberries and honey bees at Valle Crucis, though....we've got a couple other great things going on, too. For one, the thought of a real "green wall" is exciting for all of us. Another idea we hope to put to action is a garden mural on the side of the oil tank near the pre-k space. Wouldn't that be fun activity for all of us? Keep your eyes peeled for more updates soon to come!
