    "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." ....I just like the strawberry rocks but that's good idea to try as weel.

    The theory: Stones painted as strawberries when put around strawberry plants in the spring will keep birds from eating your berries because by the time the real berries ripen the birds have become conditioned to think the ripened berries are stones. I'm going to try this next spring; The children will love painting stone berries! (Click through for a detailed painting tutorial.) it would be super cute to scatter them in the garden even if the theory doesn't work!!

    "Stones painted as strawberries when put around strawberry plants in the will keep birds from eating your real berries because the birds will think the ripened berries are stones. The birds try to eat them (stones) before the real berries are there. Then, when the real berries are there, most of the local birds will not eat the berries, they have tried but failed with the stones!" #strawberries #stones #kitchengarden We love Gardening. http://www.meinhaushalt.at

    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- worth a try. In fact I just like the idea of painting stones shaped like strawberries, like strawberries!
