It is at all possible to keep a strawberry plant (of any type) in a coffee can? One of the larger ones? Or any other type of small root veggies?

Thanks! thumbup

Of course ! And those little round carrots, the mini-peas, and radishes (I'm a great one to be talking about radishes....)
Just make sure to make drainage holes with a can opener.
I'm not sure about this, but I read somewhere that if the can rusts, the rust will put iron into the soil.

The rust is good IF it really does put iron into the soil.
I had a gardenia once that seemed to do better after I poked pieces of a rusty old table into the soil around it.
