This was our first year for growing strawberries, and we're not sure exactly what happened – there are quite a lot of plants out there that look very healthy but just aren't making fruit. We've been told that hot weather can do that, and there was a late frost that zapped some of the early flowers. We're planning to let these plants go a second year and see if they improve.
We're bringing in berries from Jon at Wood's Market Garden for CSA this week, and doing some more research to figure out how to get a better yield in the future. We may plant more this fall – the causalities of the winter were divided pretty clearly between varieties, so we'll plant more of what did well and maybe try one or two new kinds as well. We're also considering some other perennial fruits to make use of some parts of our land that are too sloped or rocky for good vegetable production (and because fruits are delicious).
In the meantime, the carrots and broccoli are coming in, and new potatoes are almost ready! Potatoes may not be quite as exciting as strawberries, but they're still awfully good.
