can I grow anything in a container with 5-1-1?

Last year I grew herbs in my 5 gallon GeoPots but this year I'm going strictly with a 5-1-1 (my first attempt at it) for all of my GeoPots (5, 10, 15, and 20 gallon containers).

The 20s are for tomatoes, the 15s are for eggplant, the 10s are for peppers and the 5s I usually use for herbs like parsley, cilantro, and basil.

What about strawberries? Will they do well in a 5-1-1?

Oh yeah, strawberries should do fine!
Sounds like you are ready to go, and with those sizes of containers you ought to have a respectable harvest, too. Be sure to add the Lime, and don't skimp on the fertilizer, especially at the beginning and middle of the season.
