A raised bed placed on top of old strawberry bed(black edge)
Since my previous experience of building a raised bed, I decided to build one for strawberries too. I read that the strawberry needs to be replanted about every two years, so it was time to replant the runners and also try out a different variety. After filling the new bed with compost and lots of it, some of the old runners were replanted. I picked out a everbearing - 'Quinault' strawberry in a small pot at Walmart for $2.98. Divided the bed in two sections, one for the new variety and the other for the old one.
Here's the redone strawberry bed. The lone plant is Quinault and the rest are June bearing ones.
Unfortunately, I was saddened to see that the deer had already tasted the new planting- the very next day(:- The leaves were chewed off and a part of the plant uprooted. I've planted that back and watered them. Also, covered it with net, so hopefully the plant will root and send some runners soon.
