Hoping for Strawberries

Here is the strawberry patch I planted last year. You can see there are some weeds that need to be removed. It has been very wet and we haven't gotten to that chore yet. The winter was very snowy for our area, which is good for the strawberries, as a snow cover protects them from extremely cold weather. It's been several years since we had our own strawberries, so I'm excited about this. :)


  1. Do you have to pick the blossoms off and not let them produce the first year?

  2. Yes, that is what I did. When they are done bearing this year, I will till down the middle where the original plants are and leave the runners to bear for next year, and then do it to them, always leaving the newer growth for the following year.
