You don't need a white picket fence and a kitchen garden to grow strawberries on a fire escape either. I took this photo up on the roof at Frieda Lim's Slippery Slope SIP Micro-Farm. These are small alpine strawberries but they could be any variety.
You can see how easy it was to make this window box sub-irrigated planter (SIP). One section of perforated corrugated HDPE drain pipe cut in half lengthwise, an overflow drain hole and a recycled water bottle fill tube and you're done. You're good to grow!
Wake up America. The USDA is leading us all down a dead-end dirt road and they should be held accountable for their misleading propaganda. What are you going to do about it?
