Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Strawberries 'n' icecream

I have 21 little pots nurturing the runners of the strawberry plants. This is the least expensive and oh so easy way, to replace the spent plants in the strawberry patch. i usually pull old plants every two or three years, depending on how they look and if they are still producing plenty of fruit.
Next season we will have more fruit for our strawberry and icecream desserts, but the following year will be even better.

Strawberry plants were growing like weeds in my Mother in-laws garden...all over the place but no fruit. Wonder if it's the same plant.

I agree, it's an easy plant, it spreads like a weed sometimes. Strawberry and icecream desert... Why did you mention it? It's only breakfast time!!!

Thanks for your comment on our blog. I just took your advice and "replanted" the runners! Can't wait to see what happens to them!
