This week in the fruit garden we have some late Strawberries ripe for picking. These are from new plants this year that were taken from runners last year. To be right its best not to let the plants produce fruit in the first year but I can never resisit sneaking a crop. Now is a good time to be looking out for new runners to plant, very oftern they can be found already rooted in to the soil by the mother plants but if you can't find any rooted just peg some down with wires or even a stone and they will soon root. Strawberry plants are best replaced after three years as the berries become smaller and the plants less productive.
