Our little patch of 4 plants absolutely exploded. They are so crammed together and we got weeks worth of berries. To the point were we were throwing them out and gave up on picking them. We could of made preserves or something like that, but I figured if I blended them up and froze them into cubes I could enjoy home grown strawberries for months to come. They work and taste great. No need to add sugar at all. We are going to cut them back big time for next year. Might set up another patch too. They are so good right off the vine.
