Oh look! Even more strawberries. These are planted inside an old bookshelf that I found on the side of the road. I tipped it on its back, filled it with soil, and boom! Instant raised beds.

My strawberries went from four plants to ~400 plants in just two growing seasons.

Sunflowers

Wow! You actually made it this far? Thanks for looking! Here are some sunflowers as a reward.
