Check up on the rescued plants

When we last left our heroes, the artichoke, strawberries and parsley that I saved from the weed pit that was plot 24, looked a little bit sadtown. After they had survived a week back in the ground, I did a little trimming of the dead bits. The artichoke was starting to perk up as you can see.

The parsley plant had an intense root structure and you can tell it had been growing for many moons. I trimmed back the yellowing stems and dead weight. There is some decent bright green new growth coming out of the top.

The strawberry plants are looking pretty good, and there are kind of a lot of them- 8 plants in all. They are definitely growing fruit, but the berries are all very small at this point. It seems like it's a great time of year for strawberries because I've noticed in many of the other plots that folks are getting some serious fruit production.

And for all you berry fans out there, here's a sexy closeup!

Thanks for reading, y'all!
