Strawberry Bed. 5.11.14

I know why the caged strawberry blooms
The strawberries are blooming nicely.

Last year I transferred the strawberry plants from containers to this raised bed.  That was about one month after my surgery, so I didn't have the strength or energy to do anything else.  They looked good, then deer ate off all of the plants.

So it has an ugly chicken wire cage.  The flowers give promise of a good crop this year.  WIth strawberries, deer, rabbits, and birds are a risk.  But I can still say they are grown in local soil, and local conditions.  Home grown strawberries are very good, way beyond what you can get from the store.
