She Drilled Circles In A PVC Pipe - Just Wait Until You See What She Fills Them With. GENIUS!

Strawberries are the ultimate summer fruit, but not everyone has a patch of rich-soiled land to grow them. Luckily, strawberries can thrive in even the smallest environments.
Drill Holes In PVC Pipe
This DIY from Urban Green Space will show you how to drill holes in PVC pipe to make your berry crop thrive. Using a watering tube and a PVC pipe "tower," the strawberries grow vertically, saving precious space.
Those plastic nursery pots don't have to go in the garbage. Reuse them as planters for strawberries. Start by drilling holes in the sides, then cut out the bottom of a plastic bottle and place it in the center of the soil for easy watering.
Strawberries don't need to be planted in the ground. They can be added to any light-colored planter, as black pots attract heat and kill the plant. Give your strawberry crop about 2 feet of space to grow. A hanging planter will do the trick, according to the planting experts at Mike's Backyard Nursery.
With a pallet, you're just a few steps away from your own strawberry planter.
Berry, Berry Good
With all of these ideas, there's no excuse not to get into the sweet summertime groove with strawberries this season. If you think you love strawberries now, just wait until you bite into your own homegrown variety!
