Will I get strawberries from my strawberry plants?

I have two strawberry plants, both planted at the same time. One is now fruiting and happy happy happy.

The other, while happy, isn't fruiting. It didn't flower either.

Will or do they flower/fruit more than once a year? If only once, then I suppose I'll just have to wait til next year.

Perhaps I overlooked the answer, if so, I apologize.

It will depend on the variety you planted. Strawberries can be June bearing, flowering and fruiting for a short time from May~June depending on your location (subdivided into early, mid, and late season), Everbearing, with a flush of fruits in spring and in fall, and Dayneutral with smaller flush in spring but continuing to flower and fruit all summer through fall in small quantities.

As I read that, the lightbulb went on! I knew this info! Now I feel stupid. :oops:

However, since I didn't ask the question on what type they are when I bought them (got them at a master gardener plant sale), I will just have to wait and see what happens.
