Even though we know strawberries take a lot of work, and they don't fruit until the second year, we're trying something new. We have a Topsy-Turvy strawberry planter. We bought twelve strawberry plants from one of our Cub Scout friends. And we filled.
For now, we are watering daily and turning the planter daily. Hopefully it works. Anyone want to take bets? (Not that I am a betting girl...)
If you have any advice on a strawberry planter like this, please do share! I've heard to be careful not to over-water, and I've heard you cannot water it too much. (There are drain holes at the bottom.)
Now I think we need to read The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear again!
