I like to add quilts and fabric everywhere, even in my garden. I made a rough sample of a fabric weaving cover for my strawberry hanging planter. I call it the "Strawberry Dazzler". It is very windy up on our hill and I love to see the streamers blow in the wind.
The second photo shows the bottom of it better. I should have made this before my strawberry plants were spreading out so much. It was hard to weave the fabric thru' the plants. I also just grabbed some strips of fabric that were already cut. I like the yellow ones the best against the red and green.
I can't wait until all the plants are growing and in full bloom!
I am going to have berries soon!

I planted a few plants mid May and they are coming along pretty good. I love the steps my husband made.
A friend suggested a watering idea when I can't water for a couple days. Take a soda bottle and drill a hole in the cap. Fill it with water and tip it upside down in the wet (just watered) soil and as the soil dries the bottle will empty into the planter. Kind of a self watering! So I am trying it! I even put them in my hanging planters.
There was still water in them this morning!
My husband had to a cut larger hole in the top of my hanging planters.
Enjoy your day!
