And I came back home with sixteen baby strawberry plants!
OK, in my defense, it's terribly difficult to buy strawberry starter plants in smaller than 10-packs. And, damn it, their fuzzy little leaves were peaking out of the top of their box, what could I do, I ask you??? Leave them there? No! I had to give those babies a good home!
So now I have a cut-away cardboard box containing a motley collection of small "recycled" pots with tiny strawberry plants in the backroom.
- 11 of them will go into the strawberry pot once we rig up a "deep watering" system, because water poured into the top of my strawberry pot loves to just gush right out of the side holes.
- 2 of them are already snug in their pot, hanging in front of a window.
- 2 of them will probably be repotted into pretty pots for the front porch.
- 1 might end up in the sunny corner of our front flower bed.
It's become an obsession....
