I should be able to make jam by Monday, right?

Behold the best garden project ever! Why clutter up your back yard with flowers and other useless plants when you can create a strawberry pyramid? Yep, that's a three part dirt layer cake of 50 strawberry plants. My parents and I spent most of Friday and part of Saturday constructing and planting this beauty, complete with watering nozzle sticking right out of the top. I consider it a beautiful (and practical) piece of minimalist yard art.
The plants are teeny tiny so if we're lucky we'll have strawberries by August. That gives us about 2 weeks of harvesting before the Wisconsin winter sets in. But oh, what a two weeks!

That's amazing. I would like to sign up for one order of Joyceberries, please.

Man, I'm jealous. How have I lived so long without a strawberry pyramid in my backyard?

(I like sad, British music too, but was disappointed to have recognized only 4 bands in your sidebar. I guess I'm not as hip as I thought I was.)
