Fresh strawberries from the garden

The strawberry season officially started 2 weeks ago in my vegetable patch in Brittany!

I have been picking a few every day. As I replaced all my plants last October, I should have nice tasty strawberries all summer until the end of October.

Unfortunately, unlike my friend Sue who is lucky enough to have hedgehogs in her garden so NO slugs, I have to be quick and pick my strawberries before they get eaten!

I will have to do something about the slugs this year. I sometimes put beer for them. With a bit of luck they will prefer a nice beer to my strawberries!

Anyone who has a trick to keep slugs away, please let me know!
