Make yourself comfortable under the Tulip Tree.

My name is Victoria and I am gradually creating a suburban homestead in Central Illinois.

strawberries are fruiting

The strawberry plants are lush with fruit!

These are 2-3 year old plants.

This is one of the new lasagna boxes with compost, peat and dirt. I gave the plants a big helping of coffee grounds last week as well.

The bottles are used for continuous watering and water conservation. They also helped keep the plants warm along with straw during the frosts.
