    @chillsister I agree, I’m growing strawberries for the first time this year and they taste great.

  3. chillsister says:

    Strawberries we get in the stores these days look pretty, but are tasteless, probably a GMO variety. Also they are one of the crops most laden with pesticides. They are a waste of money. Better to plant you own, even if you only get to eat a handful. Try a hanging basket in a sunny window.

    the swedish name for strawberries can be translated to Eathling, or earth man…

    I try to keep track of the plants I have planted… then when they are on their second year I pull them… I have to constantly thin out my strawberry bed because of the runners.

    @Praxxus55712 I agree even in my cold neck of the woods I get runners and I get strawberries every year.

  13. pkripper32 says:

    @Praxxus55712 I completely agree, darn things grow like weeds……albeit very tasty weeds. :-) That hundred she planted will be hard to keep in check after a while.

    Please check out you info about planting strawberries each year. Strawberries are a perrenial. Each year they send out runners and viola another and another and another strawberry plant. Sort of like rabbits!

    Hahaha Praxxus I’ve had a patch for like 12 years they run everywhere!

  17. jakearick says:

    @Praxxus55712
    Haha I prauxus I wouldn’t expect anything else from you.

  18. jakearick says:

    i’ve had a strawberry patch for 12 years and I only planted a couple dozen. They send out runners like crazy. WARNING: may be invasive

    @ForbiddenStallion – Yes, full sun.

  20. Beardedyoungman says:

    we still have frost and an occasional cold day but most days its soooo warm.. is it safe to plant them?

  21. JimboJitsu says:

    you are so lucky not to have deer! They love strawberries

  22. Praxxus55712 says:

    You don’t need to add more plants to a strawberry patch each year. They send out runners and add enough plants on their own. In fact they add sooooo many that you’ll have plantlettes to give to friends and family! :)

    Strawberries are my alltime favorite fruit. So delicious and so simple to grow.

    @joewilder They’re not a breed picked or grown for their flavor, but instead for how they look on the shelves. Grow an heirloom variety.

    I love your garden Patti!

    Don’t strawberries need full sun?
