Strawberries From Community Garden Plot

Don’t Call it a Comeback

There was much support, and some skepticism, but in the end I have an an abundance of perfect strawberries from my hanging strawberry planter project.  Pow!  These are knock-outs.

I’m also harvesting many not-so-perfect ones from the community garden plot.  Or should I say perfect to me / only a mother can love / Don’t u call this a regular jam?

However you put it, I have lots of tasty red berries so I’m pretty happy.

    PS – note that you can see a sweater sleeve on that last photo. Man, has it ever been cold here. Where is summer???

    Ha! I totally spotted the sweater! Your strawberries look good! We’ve had a few fresh ones the last couple of days, and of course the Alpine bush regularly pumping them our. I love the berry months. Makes me want to take a drive in the country!

    Looks like success to me. Nothing better than a bowl of home grown strawberries.

    Beautiful strawberries! The ones I harvested from my garden were small but super sweet, they went on a salad :)

    What a difference between the two batches of strawberries. Are they the same variety? and which one tasted better, the container or the field grown?

    Hi Angela, they are exactly the same variety and they both taste the same. The only diff is looks.

    The hanging basket looks really good. Not as good as the perfect berry, but good.

    Yum, your hanging basket of strawberries looks fabulous. Sorry to hear it is so cold down there. I’m not harvesting anything from my garden yet.

    Lovely blog. Beautiful strawberries. I bet they taste as good as they look. Gardening: I don’t think there’s anything quite like it.

    Its not how they look that matters, but how they taste. I am so pleased to read that have a good supply, unlike mine:( Ihad to go and pick some from the strawberry farm. To make them last, I made some strawberry curd and jam recently.

    I’m new to your blog and was delighted to read its a little of its background. I agree gardening is therapeutic. As an urban potager, I too enjoy my small space, a great way to (try) and switch off from the outside world – thats of course when the neighbours kids aren’t kicking the partition fence down.

    Where do I purchase the hanging planter from? The project was a success and hope the eating was just as much fun!

    Buzz Iowa, we bought it at a thrift store, but have seen many like it. Check out this post for a bunch of product links http://gardentherapy.ca/strawberry-planter/.
