Still Preparing the Ppatch

The Ppatch is slow going.

Today I removed all the straw bales from the hill and replaced them with leftover and warped 2x4's from my neighbor.  It looks so much better, as the photo shows

Then I packed the straw back in and plan to top it off with compost when more gets dropped off.  In the meantime I transplanted some of the Ozark strawberries from the hill of the new plot to the top terrace in front of the apple trees and mulched them with straw raked up from the floor of the local feed store.

No money involved, but plenty of sweat equity.

And sunburned arms.
