This early spring has brought early blossoms to my strawberry plants! It’s April 19 and they’re beginning to blossom. I haven’t even cleared out some of the leaves from the garden yet. This also forces me to ponder the question I ended the summer with: how do I keep critters from eating the strawberries. Last June I had about 300 berries on the plants and ate about 3. The garden is fenced. Yet rabbits have their babies in the garden. The garden was covered as well. So it must have been the rabbits.
This year I have a paucity of rabbits, likely because of the lone coyote wandering the neighborhood. So perhaps I will have some luck this year. Who likes strawberries? Do crows like them.
It’s occurred to me that perhaps I ought to set out California berries for the rabbits…place the berries around the fencing to encourage the critters to stay outside. Seems ridiculous (and as if I’m inviting problems), but so does not getting any to eat.
