Although Hubby was home, it snowed all week, so the strawberries had to remain put up in the house. When I got back from vacation, I found they had already sprouted in their bags!
On Tuesday, Hubby planted them in a raised bed. It takes most berries a couple of years to start producing, so we know we won't get anything from them this year.
But we have three or four strawberry plants that we planted last year that did great even throughout the winter. They are sending off little shoots that will become more strawberry plants. We are looking forward to those juicy, ripe berries this year!
