Death of a Strawberry

Ok, I've gone from doing the happy dance over my very first strawberry to a sad dance.  Remember the picture I showed you yesterday?  The nice bright red, delicious strawberry that I thought I'd be able to have as part of my breakfast . . .

This is what it looked like yesterday afternoon:

This is what I found this morning:

Good thing I still have some strawberries for my breakfast from the Farmer's Market last Sunday, because somebody beat me to it!  Not only did it get eaten right off the vine, but if you'll notice, it's little green companion to the right is MIA, too! ! ! !

Birds?  Lizards?  (Do they even eat strawberries?)  Opossums?  Raccoons?  Cats?  (nawww, they don't eat strawberries, do they?) Rats?  Hippopotami?  . . . Nei-i-i-ighbors?  (nawww, they wouldn't do that!) Now, I really don't mind sharing, but did they HAVE to eat the FIRST ones? ? ?  :(     (* * little wail * *) 

I've temporarily moved the pot to my patio table . . .  We'll see if that works  . . . for now! ! ! !

One step forward and about twelve steps back!  :)    Does anyone else have so much trouble just trying to plant a little something to nibble on?  ;)


  1. We just had this happen to ours one day there next something had a field day and ate all the ripe ones. Some they ate up until the yellow part. Very annoying to say the least. I don't know either what decided to feast on my strawberries. I have now moved them up to my balcony and hopefully they will be safe as I trip over them to hang clothes on my line.

  2. I hope you are able to get a taste before something eats the all for you! :)
