Berry Awesome!

Strawberries are divided up into three basic varieties. So know what you are purchasing before you buy them. They can be summer-bearing (or June), ever-bearing, or day-neutral. Fertilizer should be organic and low in numbers, like 5-6-7. Too high in numbers and the strawberries will produce large leaves with small, pinched fruits.
