This permaculture experiment is going well. I suspect the raspberry bushes would be taller if they were watered more frequently, and I suspect the strawberries would be bearing more if they weren't shaded out by the respberries. But there has been almost no weeding to do, and the plants have needed only occasional watering (which Chris has been kind enough to do for me.)
The row is more sloppy-looking than I would like, but at least it is vigorous and green. I can hardly remember what it looked like as an empty strip of parched soil.
I've been feeling very down about gardening lately. I should be more excited about these strawberries than I am.
Oh well - the neighborhood children are excited, at least.
