Looking ahead

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.
