Christmas gardening

New strawberry plants in the lasagna garden
I ordered 50 strawberry plants to get in the ground this fall, thinking that they could get a little jump on their spring growth.  They arrived today, December 20th.  Last year at this time we were covered with a thick layer of ice, but strangely today it was warm enough to plant.  For all the garden planning and wishing that I do every winter, it was a pleasure to do something this time of year.  I'll let you know if the little guys survive until spring.
