    Rain gutter strawberry garden. Fill an old rain gutter with soil, plant the berries & harvest them as the overhang. Much easier than crawling through Rows of berries on the ground and you won't need straw between the rows! http://thehomesteadsurvival.com/hanging-gutter-garden/#.URMsPkq9Kc2

    What a great idea ~ Google "growing strawberries in rain gutter" to see sights with directions ~ this is just a photo, but I LOVE the idea! (seeing this gave me an idea of how to use the space in my backyard for gardening that I can't put plants directly on.)

    bonus idea: Recycled rain gutters = elevated strawberry planters. (a) Reminds me of that song: "I'm in heaven, this is heaven..." Yumm... (b) Growing strawberries a couple feet off the ground keeps them safe from slugs snails (which will love to munch on 'em if given the opportunity)
