Garden strawberries

Now here's a solution I'd never have thought up on my own.

For years we've been trying to grow strawberries, carefully looking after them but unfortunately half of them always got stolen by birds - whether we used pots or netting.

When we were in Italy this year the weather was so abysmal that the weeds completely took over the strawberry patch. I noticed yesterday however that there were pots and pots of juicy, ripe strawberries hidden just under the surface out of view of the birds for us to eat this year!

Result!
