Thanks, SharJoPaul,

The lack of space to spread out was a concern of mine, too. I guess the idea must be that you treat them like an annual and just replant each year. I have seen lettuce in gutters, too. It looks really nice.

Have not heard of that but have heard of people growing vegetables on the roofs. It was on a show called "Growing a greener world" You can find it also on line. It is on PBS where I live.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

I haven't tried strawberries, but things like radishes and lettuce work well in gutters. The problems I see with strawberries in gutters are that the plants may not survive the winter and that they would not have room to put out runners so they wouldn't be able to multiply much.

Hi,
I was just curious if any of you have tried growing strawberries in gutters. It seems to be all the rage now, but I'm not sure how well it works. I have a bunch of old vinyl gutters that were damaged in our hail storm last year, and thought it would be a good way to recycle them (although I'll have to buy more end caps, which are kind of pricey at $3.35 each). If anybody has tried this, I'd love to know how it worked for you.
