Last year we tried growing our strawberries in old gutters (that we salvaged). We had great success. In the other strawberry beds we had some slug issues, but the slugs didn't seem to find the strawberries up in the gutters. it was pretty cool to rescue something that was just going the thrown out, and start growing in it. I'd like to try a few different things in the gutters now as well, to see how they go. Has anyone else tried growing in gutters? Have you had some success?
Here you can see the strawberries growing in an old gutter.
If you look in the background, you can see the strawberries growing up here on the wall.
Here you can see another angle of the strawberries growing in the gutter.
