Is more important than fashion.

Actually most things are more important than fashion.

This was J and I maintaining our strawberries after reading about the process on Jodi’s fabulous blog. I think I learn something from every single one of Jodi’s posts.

I kind of imagined that my strawberries were finishing because their quality was diminishing. It never occurred to me that they needed maintenance!

We tidied them up thoroughly, and I am now in the process of propagating new plants from the copious runners. Based on the number of runners my hokowases are putting out, I think I may end up with 4 times the number of plants next season. That might go somewhere towards the number I’ll need to provide 2kg of berries in a single picking, like Jodi!

I think I actually have quite a ways to go 🙂
