our own little strawberry patch
i finally bought some strawberry plants yesterday and got them planted. since we've been starting everything from seed it's exciting to see actual plants in one of the beds.
i read that it's best to remove all blooms until July 1 so the plants can focus on growing and not producing fruit. makes sense, right? but i sure felt uneasy removing the few blooms that were there. i hope this doesn't turn out to be a case of 'don't believe everything you read'. i have a sneaking suspicion i'm going to stop removing the blooms before July 1.
