Strawberry fields forever...

Our surprise strawberries
My mom gave us a pot of strawberries last year, and I set it out in the flower bed at the foot of our porch stairs.  We got a few berries from it last year, and I left it out all winter, not really doing anything to "tend" it.


We now have strawberry plants spilling out of the pot and spreading around the flower bed with pretty green strawberries all over them!

We had an experience like that once with tomatoes. Go figure, the time we tried to grow tomatoes we got one. The time we didn't, we got bushels full. LOL.

Beware of the strawberry plants! Just like mint, they come back every year and take over areas. My neighbor has a huge area of strawberries that keep spreading. Love your plants! (I found you via the HV Gardening Challenge. ) Stop by and visit my blog!
