Last year I believe we only produced a half dozen strawberries from the plants that I ordered from Gurney's.
This year the plants looked very healthy and in some cases they were taking over. I had to do a lot of pulling out and replanting, otherwise it would have taken over the whole hill. Strawberry Hill.
At this point, the plants are in all the different stages of growth; some are ready to pick, all the way to some that only have their flowers so far.
We had a little incident with a chipmunk who thought the strawberries were planted for him.
But no worries, Smokey the Hunter maimed him yesterday - and by now he must be dead. I really wish she'd stick to other types of rodents and leave the cute ones alone.
Anyway, we're averaging about 8-10 strawberries a day!
