First Fruits

We received maybe 6 or 8 strawberry plants last year, and the runners from these eventually rooted, adding another 6 or 8- somewhere in there. As of a few days ago, they are beginning to yield their fruit.

A modest yield thus far, but we’re just getting started. We’ve never grown strawberries before, so there is much giddiness. Fresh from the garden- a real treat.

UPDATE: The squirrel assault has subsided somewhat (I think the signs worked). But we also planted a round bed of Evening Primrose last year. It’s growing nicely and we look forward to the show. And so does the family of rabbits that will at some point emerge from said bed. Yikes.
