my new strawberry patch

This is my new strawberry patch.  We are hoping to have a lovely crop over the coming months.  Two different varieties will hopefully extend our harvest... but we will need to net them to keep the birds [and little hands] away.  The last time I tried to grow strawberries Miss 2 [who was 1 at the time] and the chickens both kept eating the fruit while it was still green.  This patch is fenced from the chooks [and the toddler] so I am hopeful we will eat the fruit of our labour this attempt!
