Wow! Our strawberries are so tasty. This year, I didn’t tend the garden as much as last year. We bought the strawberry starters last year and incorporated the soil with 40 pounds of worm castings. Unfortunately we forgot to put up a screen to keep the critters away, and they had a feast. This season, I top dressed the garden with 2 inches of worm castings. As you can see, we didn’t put up a screen to keep away the deer. I am not sure why they haven’t been in our yard. I’m thinking the dogs in the hood have kept them away! Any way, WE have been enjoying the berries.
This morning the kids decided to wash the car so I went to get them set up. While they were arguing about the hose, the soap, the sponges…blah, blah, blah….I went to the garden, grabbed some berries and shoved them into their mouths! It helped for a few seconds….. Then I got my phone and snapped these pictures.
