NOT in Season: October Strawberries

I’ve been picking a few strawberries to top our morning cereal—only a handful but amazing to me all the same.

The Ozark Beauties were the only one of the three everbearing strawberry varieties recommended for Wisconsin I’ve planted that bore fruit in the early summer and the fall as well. They were also the least robust plants of the three. I really wanted them to serve the dual purpose of a fruit-bearing ground cover. That is the way it is with gardening—nothing is predictable.

Next year, I will move them to the east end of property where they will get morning sun and transplant a hardier variety from the overcrowded upper bed into their place. This will leave the upper bed free for a planting of peppers and okra next growing season.

I foresee a busy spring and it isn’t even winter yet! Begonia
