I miss my strawberry patches. When I first moved in to my house in 2007, the first thing I planted was a bed of strawberries. The next year, I transplanted the little plants and made a second bed. At one point, I was getting a gallon of strawberries a day. My grandchildren loved them and we had LOTS for jam and desserts. After a while, I couldn't keep up with weeding them, and my beds started to grow in. The strawberries got much smaller and finally, I dug the gardens out and the plants were composted.
The strawberries I buy do not taste like the ones I grew. This year, I planned to buy three of four strawberry plants and plant them in containers. But I haven't been able to purchase individual plants and I don't need 25 in a bunch. Maybe I'll ask someone for a few runners later on. :)
