While visiting with one of my friends this week, I discovered that she has strawberries in July! Strawberry season in Florida is usually during the winter months, so this seemed amazing! Her strawberry bed is in the shade in a densely wooded area. This would never work in my yard where there is a lot of direct sunlight. My friend is experimenting with pinching the buds to encourage vine growth. Look how healthy and green those leaves are in 90-degree weather! Something is working. If you have time and the funds to waste (because we all know sometimes those experiments are a big fail) it can be fun and surprising!
