I had a good harvest today of my alpine strawberries, which I grew from seed. (O.K., the bed is less than 4 ft.x 4 ft.)
I’m actually pretty bad at raising things from seed, but I’ve succeeded in three gardens with alpines. I sowed the seeds for these plants right into the ground.
Their taste is wonderful, more perfume-y than commercial strawberries (maybe I’ll even share the next handful). They also make nice small edging plants in flower beds.
To-morrow it will be the same:
Cakes and strawberries. . .
