Now that summer is underway, we at Honey Hill Farm have been enjoying the fruits of our labors.....
Here is a beautiful bowl of strawberries harvested this morning. I will be making homemade Strawberry Shortcake for our dessert this evening.
What is that you say Dear Reader? How did they manage to harvest so many beautiful strawberries? Well have a look at what Dearest built for our garden......
These wonderful Strawberry Boxes! He created this pattern himself using scrap lumber and bird netting. These are just the ticket to keep those hungry birds and squirrels at bay. And to make it easy to harvest.......they open.......with a hinged lid and prop stick!
Dearest can make just about anything!!! Isn't he grand! Next he is making a beautiful dual compost box. If a compost box can be beautiful? I will certainly post a photograph of the project.
If you have any questions for Dearest about the boxes, he would be happy to answer them.
