Strawberries, Night Shift, and Turkey

Welcome to my blog EG! EG's and Annie's Granny's blog were the first two garden blogs I started following last year after reading about square foot gardening on a garden forum. It's a privilege to have you follow mine!

I should be sleeping right now, but my strawberry plants just arrived! I worked my first night shift for my preceptorship with nursing school, and sleeping in the day even after 25 hours being up is no easy feat! I was attempting a nap in the yard, just to get outside during the day, and I heard the UPS man drive away. I have been awaiting these strawberry plants and was sure that I would find a note tagged to my door saying I hadn't answered, so they would be back, and I found this little bitty box on my front doorstep. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn't this. I ordered 75 plants, of three different types from Park Seed Co. I've definitely never done this before, and I'm not really sure how to approach it! I have a bed prepared, but I will be splitting the three different types between my two friends who are starting gardens this year, so that we can each have all types of these strawberries.

Sparkle Supreme, Earliglow, and Ozark Beauty Strawberries

I stuck the little bags in the refrigerator for the time being, hoping that I can go back to sleep, but I'm kind of at a loss for how to split these balls of roots and plant these babies!

On a side note, my husband's second turkey attempt on Saturday was a success. He could not have been more proud, and we had a few friends over to enjoy our feast. It was a good day!
