This is one of over 1,000 strawberry plants I planted today. As I did with all the others, I lovingly cradled this plant and tucked it into the soil with tender sweetness. I even gave it a little name.
Just kidding, I manhandled them. They can take it. And if they can’t survive me, they certainly won’t survive the influx of fruit flies later in the season! </sound horticultural advice>
