Get your mind out of the gutter! I'm not talking about beans (Though we do have a truckload of pintos drying. They are literally drying in the bed of our Fat Bear truck). I'm talking about day-neutral strawberries. We planted the crowns this past spring, and we are now enjoying their first fall crop. I think that's pretty damn special.
I am oh so excited about what is pictured above. The plants are not only full of both red and green strawberries, but they are also in continuous bloom. As each white flower opens, it signals that there will be a juicy red berry in its place in about one month's time. So, it is my hope that we'll be able to offer strawberries until the first frost! No promises, though. Isn't there some saying about counting hens before they hatch? For now, let's just enjoy the beauty of the late strawberry season.
I've become quite the fruit addict. Blueberry and strawberry season(s) overlapped this year, and now we have both figs and strawberries. Nom, nom, nom!
Today's figs and the tree from which they came.
