|Do you see the two almost ripe cherries?|
Now, do you see the devoured cherry above them?
Yep...all our beautiful, ripe cherries have been devoured, making a few nice meals for the local birds. Ugh! I think we've gotten a total of...oh...6 or 8 cherries. They beat us to the ripe ones every day before we can get home from work and harvest them!
So, with all the strawberries doing so well I was not about to see the same thing happen to them!
|The rhubarb and strawberries before last weekends rhubarb harvest.|
As of Monday they were officially covered with bird netting...
And as of yesterday, we had our first (albeit tiny) strawberry harvest! Oh man, they were absolutely delicious!!!
|This pretty little guy landed on the fence right above the strawberries |
right before I put down the bird netting. Talk about perfect timing!!!
