This year I decided was the year to start some strawberry plants. It is one plant I have never tried before so any information I do have came out of a book, but it is a very popular fruit with kids so I feel like I have to try.
The main thing I know about strawberries is that they send out runners and spread beyond their original plantings so I decided to plant strawberries in large pots.
The morning after I wrote this post I went out to check on my newly planted strawberry plants. Some sort of animal had taken to digging in the and unearthing most of the new plants. My guess would be a raccoon or squirrel (although it was a lot of damage for a squirrel). So it looks like I may be protecting these pots some how.
