More strawberries!

Last year DH ordered 50 strawberry plants and set up this nifty (8-ft square) tiered bed for them. This spring another homeschooling family offered their excess strawberry plants and DH added them to the bed. Now look at those blooms! Won't be long and we'll have berries ready to eat.
DH says he's not going to bother covering the bed with netting to keep the birds out but I'm betting when that first berry starts to turn pink he'll change his mind. Now if only there was a netting that would keep boys out of the berry patch, too.
