My strawberries are really coming along. Squidge and I water them together and talk about how they’re growing and how they’ll soon turn red and juicy. Squidge is a bit of a strawberry-aholic. The girl will eat herself sick if I let her. I find this pretty funny as my mother will also eat herself sick on strawberries so I think she gets this from my Mom.
The other day we found one that was almost ready for picking. Oooh it was exciting thinking we would be nibbling on a strawberry we grew ourselves- nom nom!
Yesterday we went outside to check on our strawberries and we found this. NIBBLED and not by us!! We think the squirrels got to it. I’m a bit bummed out at this turn of events. BAH! I won’t let those Squirrels win *shaking my fist in the air*.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I’m also growing these bad boys and I’m keen on actually eating these. damn you SQUIRRELS!!
This afternoon after a quick internet search I’ll be going to the garden center to find some anti-squirrel devices.
Also THANK YOU so much for the love on my last post. I don’t know if I’m just hormonal but I got a tad bit weepy reading the comments. I’ve stuck to tracking everything I eat and that has been an eye opener. Snack and nibble hoooo boy do did I do that a lot. I’m hoping the key is just being aware what I put in my gob! I’m also trying to eat more protein and cut down on my carbs, not surprising I’m a big carb junkie! I will keep you all posted on how that goes. I’m also off to a local cemetery a bit later to take some photographs for this months Three Corners project.
Squidge’s strawberry addiction.
