Last week, I went outside to check on my strawberry plants. I had one strawberry and it finally ripened to a nice red. I took a picture of my one little tiny strawberry and walked away, but not a few minutes later I decided I'd go and pick that strawberry. So, I went back out on the deck and the strawberry was gone! I suspect some squirrel ate it. He must have waited patiently until it ripened and he saw his chance while I put my camera away. Well, one strawberry wasn't enough for my jam plan anyway!
