I am growing a few plants of 'Mara des Bois' everbearing strawberries. The few berries I pick are not enough for a shortcake dessert, but sometimes I get enough to put on my breakfast cereal.
Sometimes I don't get any, and here is why.
The brazen chipmunk that lives in my garden has the nerve not only to eat my strawberries, but he then climbs up on a rock in the gravel garden and arranges his leavings as a bold taunt.
Look, I ate your strawberries. I did. And I will again.
I'm thinking of changing my breakfast menu from cold cereal with strawberries to fried chipmunk with gravy.
