Back in early March I did something a little crazy. I installed gutters our greenhouse and planted strawberries in them. I knew it was possible to grow strawberries in gutters because the man I bought the greenhouse from had them in his greenhouse. But it was February when I first spotted his gutters, and obviously there were no berries growing yet.
So I took his word it would work.
And it did.
This morning I walked out to water the plants in the greenhouse, and guess what I saw. Strawberries. Today is June 4th, I live in Western Washington, and I have a basket full of fresh, homegrown strawberries. Does it get any better than that?
Now, I just have to figure out what to do with my little basket of red gold.
Peace out Girl Scouts, I’m off to play in the dirt.
