Saving Strawberries

I found a strawberry planter tipped over in the garden as I was cleaning up yesterday, and was glad to see that the strawberries seem to have survived just fine. I’ve tipped it back up, trimmed off the dead leaves, and moved it into a sunny spot, along with a new hanging basket of strawberries (from our local Good Earth garden store in Forest Park), and some more strawberries I need to pot up in that ceramic planter. Berries for days…

They say when you’re deciding what to plant in the edible garden, you should plant what you actually eat, and we go through berries as fast as we can afford to buy them in this house. Kavi is our strawberry fiend — Anand and Kevin tend to go for blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries. I like ’em all.
