There were no strawberries from the weak plants last year- not even one! But this year? Oh my goodness!
It's strawberry mania!
There are not many leaves, but there are so many strawberries!
I have eaten one so far and it's sweet and fragrant like a strawberry candy. Ohhh, it's so good. I can hardly wait for them to ripen.
Luscious, luscious strawberries. How do I love thee!
In other news, I ate all the pea shoots. We ate them last year too when the plant failed to bloom, and the pea plants then erupted into many new shoots and a multitude of blooms. Looks like it worked like a charm this year too. There are tender, new shoots growing out from every leaf node. I highly recommend pinching off the tops of your pea plants when they are at a good height. This will encourage bushiness. I'm not sure if you can eat all pea shoots (I know you can't eat Sweet Peas), but mine are an edible variety.
