Yesterday we finished constructing our strawberry planter. I was pleasantly surprised at how it came together (although the built in sprinkler system that came with it is pretty cheesy).
Not too shabby
After finishing the top layer Nancy and I planted the 50 strawberry plants while Diana played in the dirt in the garden. Now we have to make sure the runners are thinned properly and hopefully we’ll get a crop of strawberries this summer. As I told Nancy while planting the strawberry plants – if we don’t end up being successful with strawberries I suppose we could always use the planter for flowers.
