Fresh Strawberries are wonderful! My husband picked them this morning and they really taste good. Look pretty good too don’t they?
They come from a planter in our front yard. My mother-in-law bought it for me last year as an early Christmas present.
They made it through the winter with no problems though! A few weeks ago the flowers came out strong and now we have lots of Strawberries!
Some still need to be picked. I’ll get to that this afternoon if it doesn’t rain again.
I really like this pyramid planter. This one has metal sides and it is not too wide. So you don’t have trouble reaching all the plants to pick the berries or to weed around them.
You can make one of these out of scrap wood or whatever materials you have handy. My hubby made me a wooden one at our old place. You make it the same way.
Create the bottom area, fill it with dirt, and then place the top areas on that…and fill them with dirt.
I was thinking of having one made for other things. I could put a couple of squash plants, a couple of okra, a tomato…just enough to keep in salad fixing through the summer.
I think that would be cool. What do you think?
