It’s going to be a tasty summer….
I know, I only have one lone strawberry blossom so far. But it’s a sign of good things to come. Hopefully. This is my first year growing strawberries. I purchased this strawberry pot with plants from Spring Hill Nursery. It couldn’t have been easier to start to grow. The strawberries come as bare root. I put some dirt in the jar, layered in a few of the strawberry plants, layered more dirt until I was at the next set of holes, and just kept going. I set these out in the middle of March. I did bring them back in a few times when we were under freeze/frost warnings, but for the most part they are taking care of themselves. I can almost taste the fresh strawberry jam, strawberry shortcake, plain strawberries, strawberry milkshakes. The possibilities are endless.
