November strawberries

Still making strawberries. They may even ripen. And a rare, welcome honey bee. I really like bees. Someone asked whether these late strawberries are sweet, and the answer, so far, has been, yes. As long as they are picked before they turn soft. Very, very sweet. They take weeks to turn red.


  1. unfortunately I will never actually know their sweet taste since the assorted critters in my backyard seem to always pick our small patch of strawberries before we ever do!
    so, thanks for letting me know.
    I really like bees too.

    1. Ha, it was you :-) Strangely, the blasted squirrel, who digs up all my greens, and whose baby oak trees keep popping up in my pots, does not touch strawberries.

  2. I love strawberries, but have yet to properly cultivate them in my very small garden. Weather conditions in New Jersey have ravaged them. You give me hope though Marie. I think I'll start over this year with a very small number of plants. The taste of home grown strawberries is so much better than anything shipped in the store.
