But I couldn't bare to just compost these plants. I mean, they did reproduce nicely. And they somehow survived the drought like summer we have had. I felt I owed it to them to re-locate.
Enter in...the milk crate!
I had watched a special on an urban farm in New York city that grew everything in milk crates. I have experimented a bit with some pepper plants.
First line the crate with landscape fabric, then fill with soil. I cut out squares, then stapled them together to make an open cube.
Now just cut a hole in the fabric in the side. Using your good steak knives is not mandatory.
Make sure not to put it in too far so that the new leaves can make their way out.
Fill in the side leaving space between plants. Plant some more in the top, keep watered and now you have a strawberry planter.
I have 23 plants in a 1 foot square space. Hopefully next summer I will get some strawberries.
