Garden 2013: Birds May Love Strawberries,

but I do not want them enjoying mine!  So far this year, two strawberries have grown and turned red, but before they could fully ripen and be enjoyed by us, birds have feasted on them first.  I went to Lowes hoping to find a net covering or something, with not much luck, so I headed over to the Dollar Tree and found what I hope to be the perfect solution....a Food Tent!  Water & sun can still get thru the netting, but birds cant.  Because it is so light weight, I anchored it down with some rock.  Hopefully the birds won't find a way to get under the tent and the rocks will keep it down even during the wind.  Crossing my fingers!
