I must say that I am glad that my two older kids (and their spouses) have taken to gardening.
My daughter just moved into her house last fall, so planting flowers this year is her and her husband’s (Mr. & Mrs. Jones-Ninja) first gardening experience as a couple.
My son has had a vegetable garden a few years now. He even took a successful stab at cooking and canning Salsa.
While visiting Mr. & Mrs. Jones jr. recently I was quite impressed with the system he built for growing and protecting strawberries.
It is 12 feet by 3.25 feet; and has four hinged lids with hooks and handles.
The lids have hardware cloth to let the pollinators in and still keep the birds and squirrels out.
He has reported getting the first berries over the Memorial Holiday weekend, a little early this year.
Check out the pictures he sent for more details.
Twelve feet will grow a lot of Strawberries!
