We had them at our old house. When we moved in there was just a small patch and by the time we moved 5 years later they had spread a lot.

I lived away up in northern Minnesota (Ely) and I had a big patch in the backyard.

It took me two days to pick a quart (they are tiny) but that quart made the best strawberry shortcake ever.

One of the very few things I miss about Ely.

They're all over my yard, but I never eat them.

My son bought some in the seasonal dept of WW and most garden shops carry them. They make beautiful green leafy plants but they only produce berries during the spring and the fall. I am sure that there are different types of strawberry plants and maybe some produce berries all season long. We have a lot of wild blackberry plants and they have berries during the summer. It is not too late or maybe about the right time to plant some grape vines. There are some across the street that taste like Welch's grape. This used to be a Greek neighborhood and I am sure they were planted for wine. There is also an apricot tree. Apricots sure taste different off the tree. The apricot tree only produces fruit during late spring but it is a beautiful tree.
