We bought 8 metal gutters attached them to our fence, drilled holes every few inches in the bottom so they would drain well, and added Miracle Grow, and planted 100 strawberry plants in (4) 10 foot long metal gutters.
I ordered 50 Honeyoe June bearing Strawberries and 50 Eversweet Strawberries.
I planted the Honeyoye on March 17, they are looking really healthy as of today.
I also planted some dwarf carrots and spinach, I will get the radishes, green onions, and some herbs planted this week.
If this works I have really doubled my gardening space.
The cost of this project - the gutters were about $6 a piece, and you need the end pieces, I think they were about a $1.20 each, but it was the brackets that were really pricey about $12 for 4. I put 5 brackets on each gutter this may have been a bit over kill but the weekend we planted the first group of strawberries we had a snow storm and I had about 6 inches of snow sitting on top of my gutter, and they didn't budge. I also bought (2) 50 pound bags of Miracle Grow.
This weekend I am hoping to get my other garden rota-tilled. Hopefully all this work will amount to lots of veggies and fruit this summer.
