Strawberry Raised Bed

Last year I bought bundles of strawberry plants, and did not have enough room for them. So the went into containers of various sizes. With the Battleground place, there is more room. So today I dug them up and replanted them into a new raised bed. The bed is a topsoil:compost mix, 50:50 according to the place that prepares it. I did not mix myself. That is too much heavy work for now. A few wilted but most had generous roots and took the move without a complaint. The smaller ones were in smaller containers that dried out too fast. Probably less fertile medium. Now they should perk up and catch up with the others.
