Two years ago, I was let go from the company I worked at. It was the best thing that ever happened to me, although at the time, I didn't know it yet. After my bout of feeling sorry for myself, I decided to start my own graphic and web design business, and I have not looked back. Losing my job was the kick in the butt to become a new business owner. So in a way, I guess I have to thank my old boss for being such a jerk. Haha. I love working for myself, but I've learned that one must be very disciplined. Especially when you work from home. This morning I had 2 early morning conference calls, and in between calls, I needed a mental break. So I decided to clean out the strawberry bed. It was a mess from all the leaves that had fallen into the garden. Unfortunately for us, our garden is surrounded by deciduous trees. Therefore every autumn, leaves fall right into the fenced in garden area. This is what the strawberry bed looked like before I cleaned it.
snow we got. They are healthy and have quadrupled in size and quantity. The plants are a year old and used to look like this. These plants have been sending out runners like crazy and growing really well. I can't wait until they start producing strawberries, this will be the first year that we get any. I can almost taste them now!
