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

Yesterday I picked all these luscious berries, and all from the runners planted just last year, which I pinned into pots for planting out later on. If you want to save money, you can very easily do the same. I see no sense in wasting all the lovely runners the strawberry plants send out, so I will be doing the same again this year too.
Now to make some shortcakes and whip the cream.

Oh, yum! My everbearing berries haven't yet begun giving me enough to make shortcake, which just happens to be my favorite dessert.

Gorgeous strawberries, really the taste of summer everywhere not just Wimbeldon!

Your strawberries look amazing! I'm confused about the runners, what do you do with them? We have lots of runners from our everbearing ones.
