Hoping to plant strawberries here

Area two beds wide that I mowed this evening

Soil too wet again! Rotting berries

Well, I got out there tonight and pulled flowers off of the newer berries. i tried to pull some weeds but the soil is so hard that i can’t get all the ones that are close to the plants.

Although the soil in the old bed is so wet that berries are rotting:

last year’s seascape strawberries. not as good/edible as they look at the moment

The soil in the newer berries is cracking. We had a bit of rain last night and today.
