It's Strawberry Season!



 

 Jo picked our first strawberries of the season and weeded our two strawberry beds. Later, she baited the electric fence with peanut butter. I installed the cages around our tomatoes and removed the grass from around the electric fence posts. It's time for us to convince -- try to convince -- the deer that our garden is not a good place to browse.

While out birding this weekend I saw several gardens out in the country that had fences around their veggie gardens. I wish you luck with keeping the critters away. Those strawberries look yummy. Seeing your berries notifies me that ours will be ready soon. Ours run a little behind yours.

Yum! Beautiful berries!

I have never before heard of baiting electric fence. Interesting! Hope it works for you.

Good luck with the deer--those strawberries would tempt me, too! *L*

Sorry for my recent absence, btw. Nothing but problems with my brand new, WinBLOWS 7 computer. :(

I'll be right down, save a quart for me!

Hey, just kidding, but if you crank the current on that electric fence up high enough you might be able to fill your freezer with some yummy deer meat...
