I noticed the other day that my strawberries were starting to bloom. If I let them, the squirrels will eat them all long before I get a chance. So I had to make some more hoops.
I didn't have to make many. Just 7 more is all I need this year. Many of my plants are new so those won't have berries on them. But next year I might need a couple more. I like making my own rather than buying premade ones because I can make them any size that works for me. Typically you can only buy 6' premade hoops. In my garden I think I have 3 1/2', 5', 6', and 8' lengths for different things.
