My neighbor and I were just discussing that we both have non-productive strawberry patches. Here's where it would be nice to have some followers so I could get some feedback! I was about ready to give up on my own little patch but she talked about how her husband was the gardener and she just hasn't known what to do for those strawberries since he passed away, so it would be nice to be able to help her bring the plants back to life.

So... strawberries in Northern Minnesota. What do I need to know? Probably time to pull out my MN Horticulture Society Month by Month Garden Guide.

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog! I am going through yours to see how you vegetable garden in a zone 3. Of course I got sidetracked at strawberries. Here is what I know. Pinch the runners like constantly. If they go to runner they won't produce. Also they love water and need to be watered quite a bit. I am not the most loyal waterer, so my strawberry production goes down in the summer for the two weeks we get warm weather. Good luck. I'm also happy to find a zone 3 out there.
