Strawberry Runners

Oh Drat

Oh Drat

The deer have pruned the tops off all the strawberry plants in our big pot…

Wee berry

Wee berry

…but a few leaves remain – and one wee tiny berry …

…and also some runners.

The girls planted the little runners into little pots.  They are not sure if the long stems should be cut off at this point or not, so they left them intact for now.

The hanging basket of Strawberry plants also has a few runners.  Eugenia and Carrot Soup offered them a little pot of dirt too!

And fortunately the deer didn’t chomp the leaves in the hanging basket, or eat up this luscious ripe berry!!

  1. We just set our runners into pots the other day, without cutting the stems. We shall need to compare North/South notes on our strawberries! Here’s hoping for more strawberry plants for all Hittys…and their humans…and not the deer.

  2. Our strawberry plants were gorgeous looking this season with abundant and large brilliant red berries…until I picked them and saw that the bottom half of every single one of them was brown and dried out. I don’t know what happened. Not even any animals wanted them.
