The Big Strawberry Mystery

My big overflowing raised bed full of strawberry plants has produced berries all summer long, except when there was too much smoke from the forest fires, then they slowed down.  Once the air cleared a bit, they started making flowers and green berries again, but where are the ripe ones?  We pondered this mystery.

One day I saw pieces of ripe red strawberries littered all over the back yard.  Birds? Rodents? Anybody's guess.

But then we saw this around the side of the pond, and we knew the answer.....

Raccoons!! How funny. Perfect little hand prints all over the place!
