"White Clubhouse" strawberry and pomegranates

"White Clubhouse" strawberry still fruiting... ate five little fruits yesterday and it's got more blooms opening. Look how quickly these clumps of rooted runners (that were in two milk jug bottoms) have spread to fill this space. What a nice groundcover, especially if you don't mind it trying to go everywhere! I could hardly complain though since it keeps bribing me with the sweet little strawberries. Just remember this area was bare dirt back in late July.

Also third picture shows the last two fruits harvested from that Russian pomegranate. At $2.00 -$2.50 a piece in the local grocery store, it won't be long before this bush pays for itself. I need to get better at rooting, so I can have a hedge of these!
