Can I plant strawberries where I've had peas and beans last year? I'm trying to crop rotate in a raised bed but none of my lot eat cabbage, spinach etc. I'll try some brussel sprouts but not a whole bed of them!
We love calabrese which grows wells in our soil so I end up planting a large patch each year. Lettuce is so easy to grow and tastes much nicer than the pre-washed packets.
These are my strabs, just about to mulch with wood chippings.
If you do go with strawberries, plan on them being there at least three years. Grow on the runners in two years time, and use them as starts for a new bed. Or, if you're like me.. just keep them in the same area five years running, thinning out more mature plants from time to time to give the runners room to grow on. Not best practice.. but really the only space I have for them.
