Strawberries bucket


Seau fraisier
My man really loves strawberries.
I took a plastic grappe harvest bucket. I cut the bottom and six holes all around with a hole saw.
Reverse the bucket and plant strawberries through holes and fill the bucket with earth.

Strawberries are always clean and easy to pick.

For those who have a big garden, you can take a big plastic trash can.
To save earth, fill the center with piled garden pots.
