2011 Garden Status: Strawberry Fields (for a Season)

They were first to the garden party and first to leave. Last year's small plant spread out its runners and took over the entire container garden:

And it gave me lots of beautiful, red strawberries over the past two months.  Is it weird to call them beautiful?   The texture and deep red color of homegrown strawberries are beautiful, I declare.

My strawberries are now abiding in my freezer until I can make a strawberry granita (maybe with basil simple syrup and vodka? maybe?).  I cut back all the new strawberry plants and may try to relocate them for next year.  If anyone's looking to add some strawberries to their garden next year, holler.
