Strawberry Plant


One of my colleagues at work gave me about 10 strawberry plants. They seem to have taken well to my garden, they have plenty of blooms and even a few berries are developing. I can't wait to taste the fruits of my labor!

Yum! Strawberries are my favorite berry.

Nothing like a freshly picked strawberry. Yummy. Looks like your plants are doing really well.

Wow. It looks like you are in for a nice treat later on. I find my rabbits also like strawberries so I seldom get any.

As for me, well I spent the day up and down, crawling around, bending over, and digging holes and planted 9 new flowers.

I think they looked nice and should look great in a few weeks.

I have enjoyed your blog.

You're lucky, I'd love to have a small garden and be able to grow strawberries as well!

We have a few plants, they always get real little strawberrys then die off. You look like you have a great start.

The beginning of a small strawberry field, no doubt. Do strawberries want lots of direct sunlight or a more shielded position in the garden? I'm more of a consumer and haven't got a clue about gardening really... ;)

I actially planted these in a balcony flowerbox container. I wasn't sure where I wanted them in the garden so I temporarily put them there. So I think you could grow them even in an apt, as long as you have a balcony.

I don't really know what they need! I guess a lot of sun since most flowering, fruit-bearing plants do need the sun for their photosynthesis. They seem to like where they are now (it's a little shady but gets alot of evening sun), so I'm not going to move them. :)

Greetings from Nashville!
I wanted to let you know I stopped by and have been enjoying your photos!

Please excuse that I'm cutting and pasting this comment, but since my right arm (my writing arm!) is still in a sling, typing is pretty difficult, so I really haven't been able to make comments.

Have a great weekend!
Chris

Not moving them sounds like a wise approach! :)

Very pretty plants...and there's nothing nicer than eating food you've grown yourself!
