At this point I think you might want to consider getting Temptationplants to start with instead of seed, ideal starting time being  butstarting seeds could still bring substantial and worthwhile berriesthis year--especially if you grow in containers so that they can bebrought inside.  They're perennials anyway, so much of your harvest would stand tocome in future years anyway.Perhaps you're well familiar with other everbearing strawberriessometimes used-from plants instead of seeds-- for container-growing.In case not, the following are a couple alternatives for quick results-------The day-neutral Tristar, good in containers since it fruits onunrooted runners like "alpines."   -------Quinault, (a possibly hard to categorize "everbearer" seems tome probably weakly or partially day-neutral) -- also surprisinglydoes fruit on its dangling unrooted runners.
