Last year I had noticed a few wild strawberry plants in my lower backyard. I managed to get about a cupful of these berries at that time to satisfy my mother's craving for wild strawberries. And I have found that wild plants tend to like doing their own thing needing no extra help of loving care like we give our other gardens. This year so far I have picked a cool whip container full and then some and they are multiplying spreading all over the lower yard, as well as, in my flowerbeds. Since they only last a short time and their greenery is low they produce no problems among the other flowering plants. These small berries have such a delicate delightful flavor that beats second to none against the larger varieties of domestic strawberries. The key to having them grow in your yard is by not mowing them off and not picking all the berries so that they reseed themselves each year. No fertilizer or pampering is needed. Let nature do her own thing and you will be blessed by an ever growing abundance of fresh fruit. Do you like wild strawberries and what is your favorite way to eat them or use in recipes?
