A few weeks ago, I bought a six-pack of strawberry plants from Target. I transplanted them, watered them and gave them lots of sun. Last week — I finally ate the first fruit! And, they were fantastic. They were concentrated, ridiculously sweet… almost like strawberry candy.

This weekend, I planted eight more strawberry plants (I want moar!) and I’ve put five of those into a homemade hanging planter (made from an Odwalla orange juice jug).  The other three still need a permanent home.  I’m hoping this hanging system will prevent the fruit from rotting! (A couple fruit from the first batch of plants were moldy before they were ripe. Sad.)

Pictures to come, my camera needs batteries.
