@Brittany Horton Morgan Basically, a good rule to remember is that if you grow a plant for the fruit or the root, it needs full sun. If you grow it for the leaves, stems, or buds, a little shade will be just fine. So good to know for our no sun front yard
Rule of GREEN thumb - if you grow a plant for the fruit or the root, it needs full sun. If you grow it for the leaves, stems, or buds, a little shade will be just fine.

"Growing strawberries vertically. Thisidea is great for fence posts in the veggie garden. Use the posts to run the supports for climbing plants like beans peas and cucumbers" Good idea!
Growing strawberries vertically - PVC pipe with holes! So easy! Not beautiful but if "planted" them around the yard, when the strawberries fill in I think it would be good... Work best if did a smaller pipe with holes inside the bigger one, to make sure get water down to bottom. - maybe short ones in front of sunroom

We also added a slant roof to the top to deter the girls from roosting on top. we used all available space. We put the nesting boxes up high enough to have storage space underneath for small cans of feed. Also, the door to the outdoor run is tucked underneath.

Composting - great to have 3 bins (can also use hay), fill up bin #1 then move to middle, when middle is full, move again, once bin #3 is full, it's ready to use and is called compost. Should be kept in the shade, because it gets too hot in the sun, and burns. Didn't know that til I took a composting class at local organic farm.
