Last year, Dave's parents gave us some tomato plants. Lets just say that no tomatoes were had, unless they were from the supermarket. This year, for Easter, the gave us two strawberry plants. It pleased me no end that they still think we can keep things alive.
One of the plants fell out of the pot on the way home, but I managed to save it, and thought it has produced no fruit so far, it is leafy and green. Jobs a good'un I say.
Miraculously, the other plant is actually producing fruit! I have photographic proof!
Yes, it's still green, and yes, it looks a bit deformed (we'll call that natural, shall we?), but it is DEFINITELY a strawberry! And it has two wee strawberry friends on the same branchy bit, and there's another cluster of three! I have not only kept a plant alive, but I've managed to grow stuff to eat on it!
p.s. Can you tell I love red? This is in my kitchen, it is the home of the strawberry plant.
