cleaning out

When I woke up this morning it was drizzling a bit, it was just after 6am and the dogs and me went out for a walk and to play ball in the fields. After breakfast I had to go into town quickly and my that time it was pouring rain. I was pleased with this, the garden needed some rain, after we had temperatures in the 30s for the last week that I am here and the rain barrels are full again, saving me from having to do it.

By 10am the rain had stopped and the sun came out and after lunch it was getting hot again. My mom and me used the time to get in the strawberry fields, cleaning them out,  preparing the soil and planting seedlings for next year. Both dogs were eager to help and I will build a fence around the garden part come autumn or I won't be able to harvest much next year
