Look at that monster cloud of sweet smelling weed in front of the poor deer. NOT chamomile



I could blame the squirrels, but they never enter the realm of the chipmunks.

    1. Thank you! I was able to eat some of the tiny strawberries I had in those hanging torture pots. They were so heavy I had to fill them with filler then repack them. I ate maybe ten strawberries, an all time high! Woo hoo! I’m going to attempt potting the berries next year in regular pots so I have a chance to eat one normal sized berry. the plants are still very healthy, pretty even, but useless unless they flower again. I just read an article and it says that I’m supposed to not pick my strawberries the the first year as it will help produce better in future years. I wonder if they meant the 2nd and 3rd years as well. One day, I will eat a fully grown fresh strawberry that I grew in my yard.

Any thoughts on the above post are appreciated! Otherwise, I think I must be living under a rock.
