Hardly a spring goes by when I’m not tempted to buy plants. It’s not a bad temptation, but I could seriously go WAY overboard on buying plants if I don’t watch it! Plants are kind of like chickens. Can you REALLY have too many? There’s always room for one more! This spring was no different. Even though I hadn’t planned to buy a bunch of plants, I ended up buying two plum trees, a rhubarb, and a bunch of strawberries. Then lo and behold, just a few weeks later the strawberries had their very first berry. Hooray! Growing strawberries is a great plant to start with because they are attractive, productive, and last for several years.
