The strawberries did end up tricking SOMETHING, as you can see from the bite taken out of it! It's made of wood, so I'm sure something was not very pleased! ;)
We learned a lot this year and feel even better garden-prepared for next year. I will space things out a little wider, I will have that netting to keep the squirrels out from the beginning (!), and I won't be at all surprised when the watermelon and cucumber vines try to take over everything!
