Strawberry Patch

Here is my strawberry patch and onion/garlic patch, two good examples of square foot gardening, being 16 square feet each. The irrigation is no longer in the onion/garlic patch. Instead it is put in the strawberry patch along with the rest of it. The sprinkler seen at the top of the picture of the strawberry patch sprays enough on the other one.

Hopefully I can keep getting the berries before the birds do. It's been a challenge so far, but it's been about 30/70 in my favor.

The fig tree is growing great this year with more than twice the figs than last year. I might just be able to get some sprouts this year for trading at the plant swap.

For those of you who don't know, there is a plant swap coming up April 11, 2009 in Forest Park in Fort Worth, Texas. It's lots of fun and plenty of swapping and hanging out.
