What's it worth to you?
We have one 1/2 pink strawberry in the patch right now and several blossoms and little white berries just waiting for the sunshine to turn them red. Where is the dang sunshine? Good question. I spotted the berry yesterday when I was trying to pull some weeds out of the bed. Bryon said Grace spied it too and wanted to eat it on the spot! That one 1/2 pink strawberry is being watched by more than the humans on the farm I know, so today I went to Lowe's and bought some netting to put over the bed. I don't know if it will work but the game is ON! Bryon said one of his tomato plants is MISSING and there are raccoon tracks all around the raised beds in the mud. Bastards. Those pale strawberries are going to cost a fortune in my sanity and money before they ever touch my lips. This year, it's my MISSION to harvest those berries. Every. Single. One. I will win. I will be victorious. Failure is not an option. Now, if only the critters would cooperate.
