Strawberries & Alan's Play Toys

This is Mom's strawberry patch last fall. We had good intentions of getting it done and planted but it never happened. We did a lot more talking about it than working on it after we bought the dirt. It was so hot that day so we thought if we put the bags down it would kill the weeds. Worked like a charm.

We got the urge to get it ready since it was so warm and sunny Sunday afternoon and so we moved all the bags out of the way and hollered for Alan

and he brought his tiller, sure made short work of what we needed done

then we opened the bags and played in the dirt for a while getting it just so

Mom could moved her strawberry plants to their new home.

Now here is Alan's newest play toy. Doesn't it look grand and just the right size for me and Mom to play with - not that he agrees of course. He is a truck driver and gone during the week so we will have all week to practice driving.

Can you just imagine the look on his face if he were to come home one Friday afternoon in his big ole truck and come up behind one of us driving and the other hanging on the roll bar riding his tractor down our road. Just Priceless!


  1. Is there anything like a nice plot of empty dirt just crying out to be planted!!!

    I love growing strawberries.

    Have a wonderful day.

  2. I can't wait to get my hands in the dirt! Still too cold here but it's warming up slowly! Would love to see pics of you and mom hangin' ten off the tractor - just don't get caught!

  3. Love the header on your blog! All of my grounds have been ready for the past few weeks, since I live in West Texas. Although it is warm, the harsh winds and dirt has kicked in. I plan on planting this weekend though! I can't wait to see your strawberry patch! Blessings,Kathleen
