Strawberry Pot

Strawberry pot JulyMy Strawberry plants are looking great this summer.  The pot built from the bottom of a old barrel is working perfectly to keep them moist and healthy.

Looks like they are trying to escape.  The runners hanging down the sides are how the strawberry plant reaches out to fill the space around it.  Strawberries make a great ground cover.

I am planting strawberry plants around the edges of the woods to establish a ground cover that will keep the weeds down and provide a sweet treat in the spring.
