planting strawberries in a concrete block wall

I live in Mid Missouri and have a garden that heeds a retaining wall. I am thinking about planting strawberries in the holes if I make the wall out of oement blocks. My garden area gets full sun all day. Will there be a problem with the roots of the getting too hot with the concrete block wall? Is there a better way to plant strawberries without having them in the garden?

Yes, you could plant out areas of the block wall. You will need to make sure that you have adequate soil for the plants to grow.
It could be a fun experiment and strawberry plants are quite inexpensive so if the plants don’t do well it would not be a big loss.
Strawberries do well in hanging baskets and pots.
I’ve included several links for you.
