Yes squirrels....I will be eating these tasty red strawberries and you will not be getting your grubby paws on them. Well they get a few, but our black netting is certainly giving us plenty to eat. We also stuck a pinwheel by the patch. I don't know if this is deterring the squirrels, but we like to watch it! This year John also got around to netting the peach tree. Last year he was too late and by this time the squirrels ate about 50 or so on our tree in one day! So far so good on that front too. I'm not sure when they will be ready. Last year would have been our first harvest so this is a new one for us. In other harvest related news (you can see Harvests around the world at Daphne's Dandelions in my links), I don't have many overwintered lettuce, but it keeps coming back. Had some with some of our new baby arugula and spinach from the garden as well for mother's day.
