One of our ongoing projects is the kids’ strawberry patch, and today we harvested the first strawberry of the season.
Our ritual is to divide the first berry in fourths, and then each person in the family gets a piece. Here’s this year’s specimen:
Meanwhile, we received a start of lamb’s ear from a friend a few weeks ago. The girls and I wrapped it in a bag and carefully brought it home. We found a spot in the part-shade garden and cleared out a new home for our new plant. After a gentle planting and dutiful watering, it appears to have taken root. This led to a great discussion about plant rooting habits and propagation.
