I'm working on documenting all the edibles that are in my garden. The last edible item currently in the garden but not in the blog are the strawberry plants. So, here they are! They grow on the near end of the berm. I first planted them in 2008 following all those rules about not letting them run, etc. In 2009, we had strawberries! Not a lot but a nice treat. Then, I wasn't sure about the runners. I tried to get them to root. Some did but I lost some mother plants in the heat of summer. Everyone tells me strawberries will just spread. Mine aren't really spreading. I have them on a raised bed. Light soil. Some sand below for good drainage but they're still staying on one end of the berm. Do I need to dig up the runners after they root and transplant them? The strawberries are greening up and I know it's time to plant new ones if you're starting a bed. Do I need to move some of these now or after they make berries. I'm not really sure what I'm doing with the strawberries at this point. I just know I want more of them. If you're a strawberry farmer, I'd love to hear from you. Thanks.
