Yesterday was a beautiful day in good ol’ Pittsburgh which is a rare occasion during these months. I decided to plant one of my favorite fruits, strawberries (way overly excited)! Here’s what I did…
I grabbed two of these hot pink baskets and two strawberry grow kits from the Tar-jay a.k.a. Target dollar bins. These are Alpine strawberries, yum!
Then I added some straw(long dead grass from the abandoned yard next door 😉 and filled the inside of the basket. This keeps the dirt from spilling out of the holes. I tried a few different things but the straw was the most aesthetically pleasing.
Lastly I filled the container with some soil that was in one of my planter’s from last year and planted the seeds from the grow kit. $2 strawberry plants in cute little baskets, awwww. I also planted a lot of basil for another project I will share later. Happy planting!
