Yesterday at the Bot Garden, we discovered…nascent strawberries! The berries are already forming right there in the flower-centers. I think these plants must have been “forced” in a greenhouse; they seem a bit ahead of the normal plant-speed—although today’s weather has aided and abetted plant progress—whew!—we broke 80 on the Farenheit scale….
The Guru and I wrangled technology, and did some pressure washing. Until the technology “sat down” on the job, and pffft!—no more progress. Well, the back porch is in good shape, and the side has gotten a good tending (REALLY needed it!). The front, the public part of our presentation to the world—untouched.
Conclusion: machine may now be “dead.”
