It is time to do a little touch up work in the garden as we move into the full harvest season. Where did the summer go? I know not many of my readers grow strawberries and raspberries but I wanted to remind those that do to spend a little time getting them ready for next year's production. The strawberry patch needs some renovation at this time of the year. You start by mowing off the leaves of the existing plant taking caution not to harm the crown of the plant. Next put on some fertilizer and then rototill it in and narrow up the row so that it is only a foot wide.
