What are the pros?

What are the cons?


I grew these little guys on the windowsill of my office in December. By February I had a few tiny strawberries from the 10 plants that germinated (not sure how many seeds I started with). They overtook the small planters, so I put them in a patch in our landscaping. All summer long we had daily handfuls of the small berries. Now here it is November- cold and rainy- and they are more prolific than ever. The aren't incredibly fragrant, but they are sweet (with a hint of banana). They are not appropriate for anything other than picking and immediately eating, as they wilt even a couple of hours after picking. Even so, I think they are totally worth growing.
