The Green Strawberry Thief

Nurturing plants up the Lottie. So much to do. I must net the strawberries soon.

My early strawberries start to ripen. One for me, one to the rot, two to the birds.

I net my first row. The others are still green. I will net them tomorrow.

I start to net. What’s this? Something is eating the strawberries – the green strawberries.

Cursing the blackbird as I net, I hear a shy chirruping from the hedge. I look up. A blackbird delicately tends to its young brood, oblivious to my gaze.

The Green Strawberry Thief. All is forgiven. For now.


About Yasmine

After working with horses for many years I came to my senses and got a 'proper job'. I now live in Weardale with My Taller Half, a mad border collie and 5 chickens. Still wishing I could spend all my time in the great outdoors
