How long will it take to get some fruit?

Normally a full moon gives me a feeling of dread. During the school year, it is easy to tell when the full moon is near or has arrived based on the behavior of the students. Some people think it’s crazy, but it’s true.

But it’s summer break. So, I was thrilled to see the Strawberry Moon. It was beautiful and I learned that the Algonquin tribe called it the Strawberry Moon due to the short season for harvesting strawberries. Which got me thinking that I my strawberry plant may be a failure.

Last summer, at the urging of my children, we planted a strawberry plant and got no fruit. I was told they produce in the second year. Here we are in the second year and still I have no fruit. Would it already have strawberries on it if they were going to grow this year? How many years will I need to wait to get my own strawberries? I’d love any input on how to better hone my strawberry farming.

Now, on to the sports.
