My First Strawberry of 2018!
She has been coddling the three strawberries that had a red tint to them.
I ate the first one that was ripe. And it was good!!!
I have the feeling that, if I tell Tessie that I ate the only strawberry, she will set up camp in the tank and wait for the rest of them to ripen...
It's probably my own fault. I was not watering properly. I am going to do better this year! I need some figs!
Tessie is mostly interested in guarding this one.
She loves grapes and raisins. She seems to think that we are going to have enough the first year. She is making plans for grapes to eat, grape jam and drying some for raisins.
I didn't have the heart to tell her that it probably wouldn't produce that many the first year... I am just going to let her sit out there on the trellis and protect whatever comes to fruit. It will keep her out of my hair while I am trying to finish cleaning the workroom. Wish me luck.
Back to work.
See you tomorrow.
