We are looking forward to our third season in our Grow Zone. and just need the weather to start warming up and we can get planting again.

We have been growing strawberries in our pallet wall bed, but the top ones got very dry and did not do very well. The Monday Green team decided to try and sort that out by emptying the top beds and lining the beds with some plastic. We hope that that will retain the water a little so that the strawberries will grow better.

We also planted up some of the runners that we coming off of the strawberries at the bottom. New strawberry plants grow off of the old one from a long runner. It looks a bit like a root that stretches out and a new little plant grows and roots into the soil.

We were pleased with our efforts and hope to be eating yummy strawberries by the summer!
