      Painted Rocks: Strawberries. "Stones painted as strawberries when put around strawberry plants in the spring will keep birds from eating your berries when they ripen because the birds will think the ripened berries are stones."

      Wonder if this works? Paint stones as strawberries and put around strawberry plants in the spring before the berries start to come in. Birds will peck at the stones and not eat your berries when they ripen because they will think the ripened berries are as hard/bad/inedible as the 'strawberry' stones.

    Clever trick to protect fruit from birds and squirrels.

    Once the holes were drilled, I screwed the boards together, attached some two by fours to the bottom for support, ran a drip line up the middle, filled it with dirt and placed the strawberry plants into the holes.& My husband helped me attach some plastic PVC pipe to the drip line sticking out the top and to that we attached a quick release to attach the hose to for watering.
