Q: I just finished reading your article on strawberry pots, and I have a few questions I hope you can answer for me. This is my first year growing strawberries. I started with four plants in a 14-inch pot. I pinched off all blossoms as they grew -- and grew more plants off the runners -- and now have a total of 18 plants. I built three of my own type of container boxes and transplanted six of the strawberry plants into each box. All are doing well. I continue to pinch off all blossoms on the plants because I read you should do this the first year to have a better crop the next year.

Vegetable farmers, do you want to have tomatoes and strawberries ready for market earlier in the spring with improved quality, too? Gardeners, do you want to start earlier in the spring and grow later into the fall season?

The Sept. 30 event, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. rain or shine, will feature a 17-foot by 48-foot high tunnel used for organic tomato, strawberry and raspberry production.

Can you feel the excitement in the air? Do you realize that Friday is the last day of school for area students? Just half a day (technically, it's a 2 1/2-hour-early dismissal) and then school is out for the summer. The two most exciting days of the school year were the first day and the last. Please be sure to be extra cautious to be aware of bike riders, kickball games and other summer staples as you drive in the area. Perfect attendance I can think of one young student who had yet another great school year.

New bakery is a real treat To the editor: Finally Hagerstown has a pastry shop worthy of the French word "ptisserie. " Recently opened, located a block from the medical center on Robinwood Drive, Safron bakery has a display case reminiscent of a Parisian shop. You will see luscious fruit tarts filled with fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, kiwi fruit slices and Mandarin orange sections finished with a glistening sweet topping; passion fruit slices layered with passion fruit mousse; almond tartlets daintily nestled in fluted white paper cups; large crunchy almond biscotti; bear claws with a center of strawberry jam; chocolate filled croissants, not made with the soft dough fund in most stores; fraisiers, the French version of strawberry shortcake, filled with strawberry mousse and iced with almond paste; Black Forest cakes with the traditional cherry on top, all baked on the premises.

Whatever I was expecting, this wasn't it. We were bringing our horses home from where they had been boarded on a lovely, sprawling farm in Pleasant Valley, the idea being that we would be able to ride more often if we didn't have to make the 13-mile drive south every time we wanted to saddle up. I was still mulling over whether "riding more often" was a good thing or a bad thing when it was time for the move. To the degree that I thought about it at all, I'd reckoned that relocating a couple of horses would be like relocating a couple of cats, only bigger.

If the avian flu ever hits Hagerstown, we might as well activate the ole "do not resuscitate" orders posthaste, because birds have taken over our property. We like birds OK, I guess, although we did not go out of our way to create a bird sanctuary. It just turns out that Da Birds and us happen to like the same things - trees, statuary, berry-producing shrubs, bug-rich gardens, water features. We got bird baths because they were ornamental; who knew birds actually used the things?

Fresh strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, and are also low in calories - one cup of fresh berries contains only about 45 calories. Strawberries also provide plenty of fiber, and minerals. They are full of phytonutrients that help fight cancer, heart disease and macular degeneration. High-quality strawberries are plump and well rounded with a natural shine and rich red color free from white, green or hard tips. Their caps (hulls) should be bright green and fresh looking.

John Herbst remembers the early Ringgold Ruritan Strawberry Festivals more than 50 years ago. A charter member of the club, Herbst, 89, and his wife Betty, 90, used to take their children with them to the old schoolhouse to make homemade strawberry ice cream. Right up through last year, Herbst dipped ice cream at the fundraiser. This year, he decided to pass on the scoop. “I finished it. My son does it now,” he said. The elder Herbsts owned and operated Smithsburg's Misty Meadow Farms.

You'd think strawberries would take center stage at a festival named in their honor, but Saturday's 20th Annual Strawberry Fest literally went to the dogs.  For at least two hours of the festival at Lions Community Park in Mercersburg, all eyes were transfixed on the “Westminster Kennel Club-esque” ring of the Fun Dog Show.  Master of Ceremonies Thomas B. Riford, president and chief executive officer of the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau, kept the crowd entertained with his doggy quips.

Robert Null used to satisfy his hankering for strawberries by growing his own. But he ran into some problems. "I wasn't getting a good crop. The birds would eat them up," Null said. "I'd even cover them with netting, but the birds would still get 'em. " Finally, Null, 71, of Boonsboro, gave up. "I decided to buy 'em. It's easier," he said. Saturday, Null discovered a sort of strawberry oasis where he could indulge his appetite for the juicy, sweet-smelling fruit at the Ringgold Ruritan's Ringgold Strawberry Festival.
