Strawberry Fields

The strawberries plants are doing extremely well. there are loads of flowers and fruits below those lush looking leaves.

The only problems I have with these strawberries is that I have only a container garden on the terrace and these plants seem to be over running the place putting out new suckers into every pot.

Sadly I have had to pull out thirty to forty plants.  I wish I could give them all a place in my garden, but I need other herbs and veggies too. Nature has strange ways to spring surprises on us. For a few years in the past, these plants would just die on me, no matter how much I cared for them. Now they seem to have adjusted themselves to the conditions and are growing wild.

The same thing happened with my lettuce as well, first they wouldn’t grow, now they are like a weed. I use all the excess plants in my garden to make nitrogen rich compost especially for my spinach and herbs. My peppermint is growing extremely well with this special fertilizer.  I will use it on my new batch of spinach and celery plants as well.

There is no waste in my garden. Learning about Korean farming methods is helping m,e have a waste free garden.
