    DAY ZERO: TUES OCTOBER 18
    Just planted Seascape Strawberries; dormant bare roots.

    EDIT:
    Eversweet; Everbearing

    Planting medium is Pro-Mix organic Herb and Vegetable mix with 30% old no-till soil.
    One container is EarthBox, the other is a 7 gallon fabric pot.
    pH’d tap water, no other fertilizer.
    Over-planted in the event some don’t make it.
    Will thin to six in EB, three in fabric.
    Will add 3-3-3 starter mix when I see new growth.
    Pinching off the first flowers, then it’s Katy Bar the Door.

  3. Plant on the right looks off, leaves are all bumpy and weird shaped. Better check that pH! :yay:

    Yippee! From a dormant ball of roots and crowns to blooms in 10 days is remarkable to me…
    Both the EarthBox and the 7 gallon fabric pot have the same medium and water. EarthBox plants seem far ahead of fabric.
    Super stoked!!

  5. STARTED: TUES OCTOBER 18
    TODAY: DAY 18
    First flush of maybe 30 blooms- pinched off (recommended by growers) to allow the roots to mature. Amazing that these had a flush of flowers in 10 days. Equally amazing is how delicious the flowers are, I ate most of them.

    Each pistol of a flower has to be pollinated, one pistol for each seed. I will have to pollinate by hand (electric toothbrush). That’s what I do with indoor tomatoes. Love to see the little pollen cloud poof out.

    I really need to cull 2 from the SIP, and the center one in the fabpot. It’s always a struggle for me to thin the herd.
