Strawberries have always been a pretty easy fruit for me to grow! The kids have always loved gobbling them up straight from the plant too.
If you’re new to gardening, you should definitely think about growing strawberries because they don’t take up too much space in the garden. You can even grow them in pots.
Here is a fun experiment to try if you have a lot of strawberries growing in your garden. On one plant, try to grow a giant strawberry. Pick off all but two flowers on the plant. (The flowers eventually grow into strawberries.)
Now by only having two strawberries to worry about, the plant will put all its energy into growing them and they should grow into two really big strawberries!
Before you eat the giant strawberry, measure it and take a picture. Share your strawberry with me and the family who grows the biggest this summer can get a surprise!
