Strawberry Plants

One of the photo challenges this month was to walk out your front door and take a picture of whatever caught your eye. Today it was the strawberry plants. Look how much they’ve filled in. They are doing so well. We tried to so hard to follow the advice we read online. “How to get big strawberries.” I plucked off all the little blossoms and missed out on any fruit this year. Next year I think we’re supposed to do that too the shooters that are coming out everywhere now. That will be tricky determining which is new growth and which is the older growth, but I want to have big strawberries so I will have to do it.

It’s funny how the leaves are turning colors because of the fall and it’s tricking me. I keep thinking oh my goodness, we have a huge strawberry out there. Nope it’s just a leaf. LOL :)

I didn't know that is the trick! I'll have to give it a try in spring!
