Your strawberry plants are too young to develop a nice crop. The first year in the ground, you should remove the flowers as they appear before they develop fruit. This will help the plants grow strong and be able to produce a good crop of fruits. Next year the plants will be larger and have more stored energy. The fruit they develop will be large and tasty. Enjoy!
