Strawberry in late October
First snow today.
Picked strawberries today.
Well, one. That counts.
From the hanging basket I brought inside.
It wasn’t on the plant when I brought it in.
Not even a flower at that point.
Must be June.
Update 20201103: The hanging basket strawberry plant is in my bathroom where there is a grow light for the houseplants under the brick arch by the shower and bathtub. Apparently the strawberry plant really likes that light because it has burst out into dozens of blooms and many more strawberries are forming. The light is simply a cheap LED grow light strip – looks very magenta/pink – and a daylight LED strip for my own visual comfort. I have had these two strip lights since August of 2017. They do not last for ever or even decades contrary to the claims of LED proponents. About 25% of the LEDs on the strips have died. This still leaves many working but buyer beware. Additionally the waterproof silicone bead that protects the lights has yellowed noticeably with time.
