Keeper Notes,  The Berry Patch

Eternally Multiplying Strawberries

Looks like I didn’t need to move the strawberry seedlings after all as the original plants are running. The migrated plants have twice as many runners as the original plants but I’m thinking we’ll go from 2 original rows (20) plants to 5 or 6 rows (~80) plants by the end of the year.

I’ve been told strawberries grow like weeds but I’m just starting to grasp what that means. I’m seeing 100+ berries already on our just the original 20 plants so it boggles the mind how many we’ll end up with in a year or 2. U-Pick at the Ridge may just be in order. Currently we’ve got the strawberries in the garden however I am thinking of getting a 2nd patch going in a new bed by the pines. Hoping to also have the bee hive over there as well.
