This fall, my boss put in 4,000 strawberry plants. No, there are no extra zeroes. You see that comma? That means it was intentional. Fortunately for us, they still have that handy dandy water wheel/planter we used to put in squash last year. They borrowed two wheels from the guy who got them into strawberries, so it went even faster than with the squash. It only took us four hours (not counting equipment repair time) to put in all those strawberries. Some of that time was spent going back to get more plants or water, but we were all really excited about how quickly the plants went in. In the end, we had six and a half rows (the tractor is on the half row in the picture). Now, for the plants to grow and produce lots of fruit in the spring!
