What are YOUR gardening plans for the weekend?
Dare I say I see the sun this morning, after a long, dreary and rain soaked week? The forecast here in NW Oregon calls for even more 'rain' (which means thick, steady rainfall) next week. It appears to be Spring in Oregon. Time to take advantage of a break in the weather today!
My weekend gardening plans call for strawberry bed thinning and adding a layer of compost/mulch. The past couple of years I've been able to use compost from our own bins. Hoping I have enough to do the same this year!

I started with 8 small plants a few years ago and have slowly been able to expand this terrace garden with using the runners from existing plants and replanting them into new areas. It's been such fun (and affordable) to be able to feed my family fresh strawberries in summer grown in our own gardens.

What plans do you have for your gardens this weekend? Cheers, Jenni
