Our Second Crop of Strawberries

Hey Friends !! I am back on Internet Explorer b/c I can't get on Firefox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I E doesn't have spell check!!! Firefox does have spell check ----- Firefox has forgotten me!! They don't know who I am!!!! Oh well------

In 09 Tom bought one strawberry plant. Tom looked them up on the Web and the Web said the first year do not take any berries off the plant and it was so hard to do b/c they looked so good!! But we didn't. That one berry had babies!!! In 2010 we had a pretty nice crop of berries.

Those berries had babies!!! We now have 15 plants and this year was a wonderful crop!! I was expecting the berries to do what they did last year. Have more babies. No-- we are having a second crop of beautiful STRAWBERRIES !!! People they are so good!!! They are the Best berries I have ever tasted in my life!!!!!!

I hope I haven't made too many mistakes on this post.

Love coming tour way, Bambi & Fern


  1. Those berries look PICTURE PERFECT!!! You are so right about the first year.. butt once you get several babies... it is hard to tell which plant is which. hehehe

  2. I thought of you yesterday when I was at a nursery and saw all these beautiful strawberry plants--I was going to buy some, but I need to find a good spot to put them first!

    I hope you're having a great day and are making something special with those strawberries!!!

  3. YUMMY, I just made chocolate covered strawberries for my mother for Mother's Day! They were good too!
    Have a nice weekend my friend!!
    PS I never knew strawberries spread like that! Then again, I never grew strawberries either!

  4. Hey Bambi & Fern!

  5. Stop!! You are making us drool...haha! We can't wait for ours!
    When Wyatt first came home with us as a little pup, the first thing he discovered in the yard were the ripe strawberries. Everytime we opened the door to take him potty, he would make a beeline for the berries and gobble up anything that had a little color to it!
