Get a more constant strawberry harvest and prevent rotting fruit with the spiraled garden bed design.
This past spring, I found myself in possession a salvaged piece of concrete sewer piping and an abundance of rotting wood.
The wheels in my head were turning. I knew from building an herb spiral that the concrete piping had a high ambient heat capacity, which can be used to create a warm microclimate for plants. I also knew from using hügelkultur in the garden that rotting wood is an excellent, nutritious, moisture-retentive substrate, and the fungal mycelium that colonizes decaying wood also benefits bees.
