Ryan told us Frenchies the other day that he was taking a trip to Hardscrabble Farms, which isn’t too far from our farm.  Seeing that it wasn’t such great weather, we asked him if we might tag along.  We love looking at trees, shrubs, and all kinds of plants.

You may recall that our last blog was about thinning and transplanting the strawberry vines and we got kind of dirty with that task.  On our way to wash up at the sink in the head house, we passed through the greenhouse and stopped to admire the plants growing there.

We were wandering around the farm yesterday, when we came upon Ryan and Wilmer in the strawberry patch.  They were busy digging up and thinning out the strawberry plants, which had become much too crowded.  Of course, we jumped right in and helped with the task.
