This is the strawberry patch we planted last year to replace the old ones. I planted 50 plants in 3 rows. Then I let the runners take over. I probably should have taken some off and transplanted them, because my 3 neat rows are now a jungle. But that jungle is paying off.
I promised this year that I would not buy strawberries from the store. I told the boys that they had to wait until strawberry season when we could go to the farm and our own berries started coming in. A couple weeks ago ours started coming. First one basket, the next night 3. They are slowing down to 2 big baskets a night. That is about 5+ lbs a day.
This is what my hands look like every night.
