This year we decided to plant strawberries in our garden. At first, we were unsure of how to do this since strawberry plants come back each year and my husband tills up the garden in the Fall. Then my Dad told me how a friend of his planted his strawberries, and it was a solution to our problem! We took one of those plastic kiddie pools, and chopped several holes in the bottom with an ax. Then dug a hole in the garden and "planted" the pool up to about the rim. We used the dirt we dug up for the bottom soil in the pool, then topped it off with Miracle Grow Garden Soil. Finally we planted our strawberries. Now when Fall comes, we will cover the plants with straw, and till around the pool. The plants will be ready for next year!
