The other plants in my pot were my pineberry plants. I purchased two of them from Burpee on a whim because I thought they looked neat. Pineberries are a strawberry cultivar that have been bred to have white flesh and red seeds; they also taste like pineapple crossed with a strawberry, hence the name. I wasn't sure that they'd do well in my pot, but I wanted to try anyhow. To my own amazement, they've thrived despite the excessively wet summer we've had. They've done so well that they're now sending out runners.

but I ate them before I took the picture.

I'm pretty excited about this! It means that next year I'll be able to have a real garden and maybe, just maybe, I'll get more than 10 edible pineberries.
