I'm not sure what I did to get such a good crop of strawberries this year, but I'm glad I did it! This spring, I thinned out the plants and lined the raised strawberry bed plus dug in some compost and peat moss when I replanted them. Was it the thinning? The extra fertilizer? The additional moisture? Any or all?
Anyway, I've got the most strawberries this year, ever. If only I can keep my 18-month-old from picking the white ones, I should have strawberries at least another week! Yum!!
