Strawberry Bed

          I finally get to cross something off my homestead someday list (see bottom of the right column)!  My strawberry bed is healthy with lots of runners.  I don't expect to have strawberries till next year, but in the mean time it's fun to see them grow.

          Since there are so many runners, and the bed is quickly becoming crowded, I decided to try propagating.  I sunk a small planter into the soil, and stuck in an errant runner.  The one pictured above is a granddaughter to one of my original plants that was only planted at the beginning of the summer.  If this works I'll start another bed on the other end of my garden, by my rhubarb. 

Mmmmmmm..... strawberries!
