The strawberry plants are starting to grow and we are all really excited about them. It's our first garden together and we are hoping for a bountiful harvest.
I keep envisioning biting into a fresh juicy strawberry ripe and warm from the sun. Or, the first strawberry shortcake of the season (with whipped topping of course).
But the dog, I call her the dog when she's done something to upset me, keeps pulling the plants out of the bed!
She pulls the plant out, shakes the dirt off and eats the plant, roots and all!
So, I got out my trusty square foot garden companion book to look for a solution.
Hubby and I built a cover for "pest control".
Now, when the book refers to pests, I don't think it was thinking of domesticated animals, but it seems to be working so far.
It's not the prettiest thing in the yard, but it will be worth it come June!
The strawberry plants are growing great!
(Minus a few that "the dog" ate).
Hopefully, we'll be rewarded with bowls full of lush red berries.
I hope your Monday is going well.
It's a beautiful day here!
Toodles my friends,
