I was weeding around the strawberries, and chocolate mint and found about half a dozen little strawberry plants. They are very small and seem to come from seeds instead of coming from roots growing from a stem. They are unique plants, not clones.
Today is Independence Day in the USA. I think about the bold men who signed the Declaration of Independence. Were they scared? And, the war that followed, the stories of sacrifice seem infinite.
I wonder how many Declarations of Independence have been signed throughout history. I wonder how many revolutionary, and civil wars are still being fought, how many countries have been forced to rejoin a union.
I’m going to look after these young strawberry plants, clear away more weeds, give them extra water on hot days. But, I’m curious which ones will make it to spring.
