    My buddy had 4 beautiful big bibs growing on mulch in his garden a few weeks ago. He said he almost cut it one evening but decided to leave it for a couple of days to get a little bit bigger. Mr deer visited that very night.

    Terrible! I've learned the hard way (a few times) the critters like it just as perfect as we do! Waiting "1 more day" has burned me a few times, especially with damcoons.

    There are a few restaurants that have a ranch I could drink as well. Wonder if they make it?

    Yes there is 500 different ranches out there, but when you find a good one with a good wing. Best appetizer there is. I did see a appetizer on tic toc that lady made out or cauliflower and franks and you bake it

    They're nice for sure! Seascape is the variety and I am really impressed with the quality and productivity. Not as sweet as Earliglow, but not far off and it just keeps on giving. It's an everbearing variety too!

    Seascape is probably the best, most productive quality strawberry I have ever seen. The variety is nicely shaped, has good deep red color throughout, good size, good flavor, and is the easiest to cap of any berry I have used, ever.

    Do you find many snakes in your strawberry patch? We've only grown in pots, but my mother in law said she always had snakes in her strawberry patch. Has my wife about half skeered of planting them in the garden!

    I've never seen a snake in the patch. If I ever did I wouldn't tell my wife because she does most of the pickin.:)

    Lookin' great, sir!

    Strawberries aren't really hard to grow at all. Plant, fertilize, keep them as weed free as possible. High density plantings on plastic mulch works great. The berry above is definitely one to bring in plenty of cash! I'm trying to talk my youngest son into planting a decent sized plot this summer for next year.

    Don’t know the name of these. Been in my mil family for years. Super sweet but they grow about 5’-6’ tall. Gotta have a tall fence for them. Getting ready to put them on shortly.
