#native #strawberry put out a runner last year and decided this would be a good place to grow. 30 Apr 2022 #fragariavirginiana #ifitwantstoliveitllfight

#wildstrawberry is putting out #runners now! This one is #fragariavesca-albicarpa -- I also planted fragaria virginiana, but those haven't put out runners yet. Their leaves are bigger too -- it's cool that I can tell the difference. #woodlandstrawberry 8 may 2021 #native #nativeplant #edible #groundcover #ediblelandscaping

Some commercial growers dig up all of their strawberries every year. To help reproduce them as well as eliminate weeds.

It's kind of a miracle -- all 9 of my #woodlandstrawberry plants made it through winter, even though I gave them no mulch or straw or anything. 26 Mar 2021 #fragariavesca #wildstrawberry #strawberries #tripplebrookfarm

For future reference, in case the labels get washed away: V = #fragariavirginiana; AR = #fragariavesca-albicarpa with red fruit; AW = #fragariavesca-albicarpa with white fruit. I thought I only ordered 6 strawberry plants but I ended up with 9. 12 Dec 2020 #tripplebrookfarm #groundcover #ediblelandscaping

Forked up a ring of soil in my #raisedbed and added compost from my very first compost pile ever and tucked in nine #woodlandstrawberry plants. Two of them will bear white fruit 12 Dec 2020 #fragariavesca #fragariavirginiana #fragariavesca-albicarpa #betterlatethannever #tripplebrookfarm #groundcover #ediblelandscaping

As soon as the wood chips arrive I'll spread them around the plants, and then cover with some straw till spring. Does that sound about right friends?

Great! It’s very satisfying isn’t it to use your first ever homemade compost?

@richard.spicer.7906 I was so surprised how small the pile cooked down to. But it had actually turned into crumbly black soil, I was amazed.

I thought for sure I'd somehow washed away all the #woodlandstrawberry seeds during fall rainstorms, but lo and behold these guys have sprouted. Too early to tell if they're really strawberries, but this looks much more promising than before. I'll allot them some winter grow-tent real estate. 27 Oct 2020

#overseas-seedmail from @GardenBoxProject -- #fragariavesca #woodlandstrawberry #alpinestrawberry I told Trish I'd never tasted these when I had the chance -- they appeared regularly at farmers markets in Strasbourg France where I spent my junior year abroad. But I didn't know what they were, and compared to gigantic North American grocery store strawberries, they looked feeble and puny, so I never tried them. Now I'm gonna remedy that. Thanks Trish!! 😙💕🍓30 Aug 2020 #seedmail
