I planted my everbearing strawberry plant in a hanging coco basket and mulched it with pine needles. We have an endless supply of pine needles in the backyard (aka the woods) and are great for mulching acid loving plants. I admire the blooming pink flowers from this strawberry, they're oh so pretty...I have a thing for pink! The other strawberry plants will be transplanted in the raised bed soon. My sweet husband is almost done building the deer fence for the veggie patch, the area looks fantastic!
