In the Garden: Strawberries are not for the Birds

Organic Vegetable Garden (OVG), May 12th:

For the past week we have been harvesting beautiful strawberries from our patch in the MGNV Organic Vegetable Garden in Potomac Overlook Park.  We noticed that many of the berries had been sampled by birds.  To prevent this, we have covered the berry patch with netting.  The netting can also keep squirrels and other critters away.
