Bumper crop

We bought a strawberry plant a couple months ago. It had about 15 flowers and I imagined a big fat juicy crop. I wanted to put it outside but was discouraged by deer, rabbits, and masses of tent caterpillars. So, the little guy sits in a pot in the kitchen and doesn't get as much direct sunlight as needed.... I started putting it outside on sunny afternoons and we were lucky enough to get two perfect little strawberries. The rest of the flowers shed their petals, the centers (what would become the berries) grew slightly in size and now appear dormant.
