Remember when I planted the strawberries? I was very excited to have a blossom on the plant already. Well, it ended up being the only blossom I got, but it survived and produced one lovely strawberry:
I took that photo Friday morning, figured I’d give it one more day to ripen, and then pick it on Saturday. Only some thief-in-the-night creature made off with it before I could do so!
I had put the planter on top of a table, to help deter such thefts, but I guess I underestimated the resolve of the hungry neighborhood critter contingent.
So much for getting to taste my own first home-grown strawberry! I hope it was delicious.
I’m considering moving the planter back inside. Think it’s too late for it to bloom again? I know next to nothing about this kind of thing…
In the meantime, I have no problem swinging by the local farm for my strawberries. Always nice to say hello to the chickens and see what other yummy goods I can pick up while I’m there!
