I went to one of the farmers markets yesterday and got strawberry plants for a 1.00 apiece. I put them in one of the spirals that I made. I think it looks cool.



If anyone is interested how I made the spiral Ill post how I made them.

That is very cool CR ... I have finally convinced the hubby to let me put edibles in the front yard (the light is sooooo much better there) ... That would make a really pretty "decoration" for the corner by the driveway! :D

Any special tricks to it??

Measure out the space (in this case it is 3ft X 3ft). Saturate the ground until it will hold no more water. Put down news paper or flatten boxes or in my case paper feed sacks. Saturate the paper as well. there are two reasons 1 it will block weeds and 2 it will rot and give the plants food.

Put down your first layer of soil



start putting your rocks around it



start your spiral before you get to the end



space the rows about six inch apart. when you get about half way around add more dirt. spread it out and continue until you get to the top. keep adding dirt it should rise as you go.



It took me an hour and a half to make the small one. This is the big one 6ft X 6ft



This is the small one
