Strawberries in October?

Strawberries in October
 It was quite a surprise to see these yesterday.  I'm not sure we'll have enough warm days left for these guys to ripen, but it sure would be nice to have strawberries this late in the year.

At this point, who cares if they rippen? They're gorgeous!

I got a strawberry plant in our spring plant swap. It began flowering with a few strawberries this September and October, but the cool weather slugs got to them.

I don't think mine will ripen. I blame the cold snap we had over the weekend. I had no idea slugs were so tenacious as to still be hanging around this late in the year.--Miriam
