Strawberry festival

Apples in the orchard
Mellowing one by one;
Strawberries upturning
Soft cheeks to the sun;

- Thomas Bailey Aldrich, Marjorie's Almanac

We have 2 varieties of beautiful fruiting strawberry plants ready for planting.

BENTON: Extra hardy variety that grows well without a lot of water. Large flavorful bright red berries, good for fresh eating right out of the garden or for freezing. Produces the entire crop all at once (one crop)

HOOD: Very productive variety producing large to extra large sweet berries of excellent quality. Produces the entire crop all at once ( one crop )

Strawberry shortcake anyone?
