Oh me, oh my at the strawberries!

Last year a lady in our church kindly bought us quite a few strawberry plants. We planted about 25 and then gave away the rest. Having heard that strawberries were hard to grow, we never bothered with taking care of the plants (protecting them through the winter, pinching off blooms or whatever your supposed to do to be a good strawberry caretaker 🙂 ).

We got almost nothing the first year but we were told to expect that.

But this year we were so surprised!

We’ve had SOOOO very many strawberries! We’ve picked every other day for a few weeks now and have gotten basketfuls every time!

We’ve made strawberry ice cream…

Strawberries & Cream Oatmeal

And I will admit to sneaking a few while we were picking…

No doubt about it, I will be taking care of my strawberry patch from now on!

    Wow! That’s a lot of berries. We only started with 4 plants, but they are multiplying fast.
