Strawberry Update


Do you remember the strawberry plants we planted on March 25? The picture above is a strawberry I picked off of them. If you don't remember how small they were when we planted them, they looked like this.


The plants were so tiny, we weren't sure if they would live or not. But look how big they have gotten in just seven weeks. They have grown by leaps and bounds.


I was told they wouldn't bear fruit the first year, but they have -lots of beautiful red strawberries! They are so much juicer than the strawberries from the store! I am so happy to have fresh strawberries in my yard.
