They did it again....

Those darn little critters came between midnight(yes, I checked before I went to bed) and 6:30am and took my bait strawberry. They had a little struggle though...a few small pieces and left behind and some stain where they got thru the netting. Yes....they ate thru at three places. So Hubby is onto plan two and is at Lowe's right now getting more ammo to keep those little buggers out of my garden. It's not bunnies...there are no poop pellets anywhere. We suspect a small mouse or rat. We have the kangaroo rats in the area.

Your gardening plots are amazing.
I have no idea how to keep varmints out- it is so frustrating when you have worked so hard.
Let us all know what you do-

Hi Connie,

Was on a hiatus for a while but back now and had to stop by and see what was happening and you have a little garden thief I see. Strawberries not less my favorite, we need to catch the little bugger.

Just a little something from Judy said...

You sure do have the best looking garden plots. What a shame that they are being invaded. Just a tiny suggestion from me, and I do not know if this will help. But, since I live in farm country, I see many of the farmers put a post in their gardens and tie tin pie pans on ropes and tie the robes to the top of the post. As soon as their is a slight breeze the tins pie pans make noise hitting together. They claim loud noises like this keeps the critters away. I don't know that for a fact, I just heard it to be true. Good luck!

Your blog decor is so beautiful! I just sat and stared.

Strawberry's are cheap if you buy them bareroot. Plant them in pots around the outside of your netting to feed the birds, mice... and yes, if you live near the groves - the rats. I also have possums and raccoons. Just grow enough to feed them all plus you!
