After a too-wet spring destroying blossoms and reducing pollination, this has been a poor summer for growing anything. My plot of everbearing strawberries produced a couple of handfuls of blueberry-sized strawberries. This berry was one of the few normals, which I found on the front porch rail. Here's why it was not on the plant:
|The thief didn't even have the courtesy to eat the whole thing.|
|Not the work of slugs--those are teeth marks.|
I'll just have to heap more compost and chicken fertilizer on the garden and hope for better luck next year.
|Not for dinner.|
