My Strawberry Patch

Last week I had an anonymous reader ask for more details about my strawberry patch.

The variety I have planted are everbearing strawberries. My husband purchased the dormant roots off of eBay.

The plants are in a 3 ft X 15 ft (?- not sure, I haven't measured it) flower bed that sits between the basement stairwell and the concrete backyard pad.

I planted the strawberries last spring and they've had a little bit of time to establish themselves. I will probably have to thin them out next spring.

And as you can see by my recent photos, these strawberries are almost ready to pick!
