True love

As much as I loved my strawberry house, it wasn’t perfect:

Clipping and unclipping the net door was a bit of a phaff and I think the gravel in the base of each section of guttering was not needed after all. 

The plan for next season is to replace the glass sections of the door with chicken wire or the like. I’m tempted to do the same with the curved plexiglass panels on each side in order to improve the ventilation. 

Meanwhile, the best of the plants will overwinter in a bed to the right of the strawberry house. This bed will be filled with wildflower seed come spring to attract bees to the strawberry blossoms.
