sneaky strawberries


I read about this trick on Pinterest.  Apparently, birds will think the painted stones are real strawberries and as result won't eat your real strawberries.  It's the classic stone-strawberry-bird decoy.





We planted strawberries in our garden for the first time, so I decided to put this tip into practice in order to give them the best chance of success. 

I've also heard that strawberries spread like crazy, but so far ours have been pretty tame.   I'll let you know how this experiment turns out!
