Wicking Box -Strawberries


We were away for 2 weeks in November and despite some very hot weather these plants showed no sign of stress when we returned.

I wasn’t happy with these wicking boxes, I’ve found bigger, more substantial boxes that are used to transport fish. I decided I’d empty them out when the strawberries died off but they are just getting more and more prolific. I’ve had all different sized fruit but they’ve all been very, very tasty.

They might not be pretty but my wicking boxes are the best containers in the garden.

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”

Does this ring any bells with you?
