Raised Strawberry Bed On a Budget!


Today we built our raised strawberry bed!
The whole project cost under $20!!
Here is how we did it!
Picking an unused spot in front of the porch,
We laid down a double layer of Biodegradable landscape fabric.
Using wood Volfie has recycled  from a packing crate at work..
He simple nailed me together a box!
Once that was done ( and sorry I have no pictures because I was too busy spreading the compost with a rake) Volfie willed the bed with four wheel barrow loads of material from the compost heap. Mostly rotting straw mixed with goat and rabbit poop from last year.  We then put a thin layer of soil on top and planted the 14 Strawberry plants!
These came from my dear friend Barb who had extra plants in her strawberry bed. Even the nails used in this project came from Barbs Husband Bruce. He got a bucket full at a yard sale and was only to happy to share!  As a thanks you I took them some of my home started organic
celery plants and a dozen fresh eggs!
It is a blessing to have such wonderful friends to share life with!
The only cost to us was the landscape fabric and 3 bags of soil.
Hopefully in no time at all these plants will spread to fill the whole bed. Years worth of strawberries to enjoy! Thanks Barb&Bruce!
CHEERS!
