Well it's been really cold here in Minnesota getting down into the low 40's at night. My plants are all stunted and slow to bloom etc. Well the other day weeding my strawberry patch I finally saw some blossoms. There's a lot of them too so I will have a lot more berries than last year. They haven't flowered yet but the white buds are there. Just wanted to share my excitement was all. Have a great day/evening all. HAPPY GARDENING FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

That is great to hear! My one strawberry plant is budding with two baby strawberries now. I did have one that was ready to pick but was unable to get out there and now it's ruined. But the good thing is that school is out and I am not working so I will have time to work on the garden.

I water all my veggies, fruits, and flowers daily. That's one reason they seem to grow so well each year. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

Near 70 today here. It's ben in the 40's at night so not too bad for the plants. They survive. But if it gets near freezing the the tarp and burlap bags come out to cover the tomoatoes etc. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

That is excellent. It would be very nice to grow a lot of strawberries, it has been really cold here, and it has been difficlt to get anything planted. It is suppossed to a lot nicer tomorrow so I will get some things in the ground tomorrow.

I have a lot planted. In Minnesota I started planting late April for the colder plants and Early May for most other things. Just planted a few things 2 weeks ago at the latest. I have maybe 25 strawberry plants I think. They spread like crazy. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Yummy, fresh strawberries. I love strawberries. You will need to make some homemade ice cream and put some on it, on waffles, in cereal or just eat them plain. Delicious.
