LOL. there are literally hundreds of versions of this (on line) and all seem to trace back to the same "gutter" gardens we discussed a while back in another thread. No one has given credit to the original photographer so there isn't much to go on. Apparently those are all gutters, inside some kind of greenhouse, and have wooden supports around the gutters/half pipes. It must be an amazing feeling harvesting from there. Yum!

We call them "Strawberry Troughs" here in Delaware. Our strawberry farm is almost a mile away from us, and they've troughed their strawberries for many years. I must remember to take pictures when they come in season. Ours are not in a greenhouse (or fake) grown. Ours grow in fields - acres and acres of them. Customers pick their own berries without the backaches.
