I started these plants in early spring, and really impressed with how much growth they have put on. We have had dozens of Strawberries to eat between May and June. Now its mostly just putting on vegetative growth. These plants in the pots did much better than my hanging Strawberries. I think due to them having much more root space. Though I wonder if the pots have become too crowded. It seems like its producing less now that the pot is completely full of plants.
To test this @activate.alpha and I planted some of the runners into their own pot with alot of space. Curious to see if they produce large Strawberries. If so I need to thin out these pots. And to do that I will need some more pots.. Haha soon enough ill a dozen pots just for Strawberries. If I can find a way to keep the Yellowjackets from feeding on them maybe I can enjoy them more. The early Spring they did great and we got alot, but as summer moved on. Many animals, insects and birds fed on the berries.
I think at this point in the year I will leave them alone and let them just do their thing. Since the making of this video I have trimmed off all the runners coming out of the pots and placed them in their own containers.
Quite impressive these plants produced fruit within a month or two of planting. Now I just have to figure out what they want so they will produce more. I think spacing them out will help alot. Maybe Ill build an aeroponic system for them so they each have their own space. Though thats a project alone and maybe Ill save that for when I have a little more time.
I show off my Hive planter as well, adding the blockchain logo to the sides of the box. At the moment they are holding up pretty well but we shall see if they swell up over time. The building material of this planter is not the best so I hope they will hold up. Otherwise I may need to buy some clay pots.
Really glad we started growing Strawberries again, and looking to do more cool things with them. Even if the hanging planters did not work I have other ideas for some garden projects using them in the future.
