> Strawberries perform best with drip irrigation.

Thanks for the info, Jim. I did try drip irrigation the first year I had 
strawberries (I just planted these in 2006), but it didn't work out very 
well. The drip hose I used didn't last even one season before springing 
leaks, though that might be because I had the water pressure too high. 
And it was a mess to remove again when the strawberries spread.

We'll see. I might try it again. But so far, I'm not having a big 
problem (and even 750 ft. of hose is far, far more than I could use).

Thanks again,

Lincoln, NE (zone 5)
