Shelter-in-Place Journal, Day Forty-Nine

A few years ago, we planted some strawberries in one of our EarthBoxes. We didn’t get much of a crop, but what we did get was tasty. I never got around to replanting that box – and every year since, we’ve gotten strawberries (even though the soil level in the box keeps going down).

Today, we harvested the first three strawberries from that box for this year, and there are lots of green berries that should be ready soon. I don’t know how long we can keep going before we have to do something (and I don’t know how to replenish the soil in an EarthBox without digging everything up), but I’m enjoying it while it lasts.

We watched Young Frankenstein this afternoon – it was in a 9-movie Mel Brooks Blu-Ray set that I’d bought on sale for $25 from Amazon in June, 2013 and never opened! It was as funny as I remembered, but I do have to say it wasn’t quite as deep as the National Theatre productions of Frankenstein that we saw over the weekend. Some day, I should watch the original movie.
