Aug 14 – I planted a strawberry patch.  These are everbearing.  The patch is 2 ft x 4 ft, but the wee runners are moving into the next 2 x 4 patch, so for next spring I’ll have 2 x 8 of strawberries.  I hope it’s enough.  Currently any berries I get are a little mis-shapen – the tops are skinny and the bottoms wide.  I read that I should discourage berries the first year to allow the plants to settle in.  Mine seem to have done so, so I’m letting berries form.  The really weird ones I just toss to the chickens, who love them.
