Violas

4 TOWN FARM IN SEEKONK, MASSACHUSETTS (NEAR PROVIDENCE)

IN ANANDA & NATE'S BACK YARD

VOILA! VIOLAS! AND STRAWBERRIES!
YOU CAN TRAIN BIRDS TO STAY AWAY FROM YOUR STRAWBERRIES BY FINDING SOME SMALL STONES THAT ARE STRAWBERRY-LIKE IN SHAPE. PAINT THEM RED, AND SPRINKLE THEM AROUND YOUR STRAWBERRY PLANTS BEFORE THEY MAKE FRUIT. BIRDS WILL COME TO CHECK OUT THE FAKE BERRIES, WITH DISAPPOINTING RESULTS. WHEN THE REAL BERRIES COME, THE BIRDS WILL IGNORE THEM, HAVING LEARNED THAT YOU ARE GROWING ROCKS. OF COURSE, THERE ARE ALWAYS ANTS, AND SQUIRRELS, AND WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE . . .
