For this occasion, I had arranged for flowers to be secretly placed in our room beforehand. 

The room was high up in the old house and was spacious. There was a very nice view out across the river flats. It was pastoral, calming and romantic. Interestingly enough, the ferry still runs back and forth...... Qua óc chó
Ach, but here I go again rambling off-topic.

Right then, --snapping back to reality--

There have been jobs to do out the ying-yang and more visitors. I shall limit further discussions of other-garden and other adventurous exploits for other postings. Now, I would like to direct your attention to the season's first and the subject of this posting:

 

The first strawberry..... removed ~two weeks ago. Later this year than last.
The taste of that first strawb went to my bride. I got a nibble from near the stem attachment. It was delicious. There aren't words to describe. I shall just say this,--I am passionate about strawberries.

Well then, with the appearance of reddening strawbs, it meant that it was time to throw a net over the patch so that we would have enough to freeze-in, jam up and eat fresh.... If I did not do that, the blackbirds would consume them all, leaving only a dropping or two to taunt.

June 6, 2015 June 6, 2015 <![CDATA[Strawberry transpalnting]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/769/strawberry-transpalnting I have a strawberry patch that has gone wild. The runners have developed new plants and becasue they are so compacted now I don't know how to tell the old plant from the younger plant when transplanting this fall. I really want to get this patch more organized so but now do not know which plants are new or older and the entire patch needs retilled and completely repalnted in rows that easier obatinable when picking. Anyone with any advice before fall 2015 gets here?

<![CDATA[Strawberrys - Zone 9 - Florida - question for when it gets really hot]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/535/strawberrys---zone-9---florida---question-for-when-it-gets-really-hot This is the first year that I am growing strawberries.    I bought 25 bare roots plants (Sweet Charlie - June Bearing) as soon as they were available this winter.  They are growing in containers - one plant per pot/container.   Not many had flowers, but I snipped off those that did as instructed.   It seems like the first year is for getting established.

I have searched but haven't found the answer regarding what to do with the plants when it gets really hot (June-mid October).    Any advice would be appreciated.    Also, when does strawberriy plants produce runners?

<![CDATA[Strawberry plant fertilizer question]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/314/strawberry-plant-fertilizer-question I planted a new patch of Strawberries last year late summer/ early fall. They grew and spread out well filling in the areas nicely. I keep them inside a garden fence and covered them with plenty of straw for the winter to protect them. Now in the early spring when weather starts to warm out more I want to fertilize them with some type of fertiziler, preferably organic. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Never grew berries before and so far has not been hard,other than keeping them watered nothing to it once you put them in the ground. I have read several articles about pests that affect berries and how to keep them growing, but nothing mentions fertiziler suggested. Really looking forward to those new strawberries early this year, may get a hoop house set up over them to see how early I can get them to set fruit.
