Home Garden Strawberry Patch
*this post contains affiliate links for more information check out my disclosure page here*
Two years ago, we planted a veggie garden & included a few strawberry plants.
We have had such success with the strawberries that we let them take over the entire raised gardening bed. This year we have been blessed with a bumper crop of strawberries As they say of plants in the gardening world… 1st year they sleep, 2nd year the creep & 3rd year they leap!
Well… our strawberries certainly leaped.
Strawberries are the best because they are such care free plants.
They require very little weeding & provide us with wonderfully shaped fruit.
Our youngest, asked me the other day why our strawberries are so curiously shaped & not as perfect looking as in the grocery store?
As he stuck a few strawberries in his mouth, he reminded me how much sweeter our strawberries are even if they aren’t the prettiest… 🙂
The last two years he has raced down to the raised gardening beds early in the morning so he can eat the strawberries before his siblings do, Ha!
Since we allowed the strawberries to take over this year there is PLENTY for everyone! Most days we have enough strawberries to make strawberry pie with . (I will be sharing the recipe with you guys soon) And hopefully enough to make strawberry jam with.
If you have a strawberry patch you will definitely need to have the perfect strawberry basket!!! Longaberger baskets are def the best, in my opinion! I find them at thrift & antiques stores all the time!
I will be adding 2 more raised gardening beds soon for more veggies, pumpkins & blackberries. I can’t wait!!!
