I'm a 23 year old from Australia. I like gardening, making my own food when possible, learning to cook, and trying to transition into a healthier lifestyle by reducing foods in my diet that have artificial junk in them and exercising more.
My strawberries! I was losing a considerable amount of fruit to the birds until I used an animal pen (metal cage) and assembled it around the plant to protect it. I threw some bird netting over the top and suddenly the plant went crazy producing fruit.
Its stopped growing fruit in January 2013 though so I’m not sure if that’s because the weather has become completely erratic with extreme heat and cold all in one week but I think its had enough for now. The plant is still healthy and I’m cutting off the little runners so I can transfer them into my other garden and have a bigger collection of strawberries next time it flowers.
