Perhaps we're doing something wrong? But at least they're tasty.

They sound like wild strawberries - do they taste a tiny bit vanilla-y?
they are cute looking though. :)

Is this your first year to have the plant? I have heard you are to pinch off the blossoms the first year and not get any strawberries..then the following years you get the fruit...

We have some wild strawberries like that in our backyard. They are tiny, but they taste like candy! :-)

Most likely you are not doing anything wrong. The large strawberries that you see in the super markets are the crazy hybridized versions (sort of like all the farm chickens bred with the super large breasts). There's been a trend lately with the garden centers stocking the heirloom versions (there are a lot of different kinds, not just the wild ones, even white strawberries), and most likely that is what you got.

You're not doing anything wrong. It depends on the type, but most are small the first year and they get bigger each season. The second and third year, they get much bigger and start branching out!
