Hey, fantastic bucket! With those new looking leaves, and your warmer zone. I think they're fine.
What kind or type of strawberries, do you know? I tried Tristar day neutrals last year, and every single berry was tiny and bumpy. Maybe I'll try some in a bucket with bagged soil. I've been wondering about using my buckets some other way than having a rank of rain buckets along the shed.
Thanks for reading and posting the pic.
