Get out in the garden and plant strawberries this weekend for slicing up all summer long.
The world is too full of strawberry-packed possibilities (shortcakes, ice creams, jams, preserves, or simple berries dipped in rich chocolate) to accept anything less than perfectly red and juicy fruit -- especially when it's so easy to grow your own.
Whether planted in the ground, a raised bed, or a large pot, homegrown strawberries area a summertime pleasure for any size garden and any gardener, regardless of skill. The only real secret is choosing the right variety of berry for your particular region.
