With a little bit of TLC on  patch of wild strawberry last year (basically let them grow, weeds and all) and did not mow over them which (I usually did).  This year the plants grew very well, like 6-7 inches tall with full leaves. This year I pulled weeds occasionally. The result is we have been picking sweet strawberries since early June. …

I’ve been told that so long as you keep picking, the berries will keep growing. That’s exactly what’s happening so we are enjoy ing the harvest 2-3 times a week. 🙂 Pictured is a little over 2 cups, largest berries are about 1/2 inch diameter.
