DH got home from work early today and shortly thereafter the Fedex guy arrived. He had a box of 100 strawberry plants and 10 raspberry canes. The sun was shining and DH went right to work turning the soil in the beds these were to go in. Four different kinds of strawberry plants went into four beds and two different kinds of raspberry canes went into two beds. It is exciting to be doing this once again. The last time we did it was 25 years ago with high hopes of lots of U pick customers. We neglected to take into consideration that we were “from away” and therefore not to be trusted enough to come by and purchase anything. It was a hard lesson in cultural differences.
