This spring they emerged and produced a lot of leaves and, lately, a lot of flowers. Today I decided to go take a look and put the bird netting over the plants so the robins don't get the berries when they ripen. Much to my surprise and delight, I found ripe strawberries!! Not enough to make jam but certainly enough to eat for breakfast for the next few days! I researched "Fort Laramie" strawberries and they are an everbearing variety so hopefully I'll get some good handfuls here and there all summer. Yay!!! . . . . here's an article from Utah State University about growing strawberries .
