Strawberry Days Ahead

Rather than grow my strawberry plants outside and make it easy for slugs to decimate the crop I have elected to use the ground under the greenhouse staging. Inside growing doesn't do away with the problem of slugs entirely but it does make it easier to control and of course the crop is ready for picking much earlier.

This will be the fourth year for the plants. So far the crop has increased year on year and I am hopeful that I will experience a further incremental increase this year. The fruit are beginning to set and I am hopeful that I will be able to pick upwards of twenty four pounds of berries this season. Four weeks to go
