Garden gates keep the deer out of our garden, except when I forget to latch it, but that doesn’t stop our forest gnomes. Ripe strawberries look just like their little pointed red hats. I’ve got some to spare and do share, but will they take the whole berry? No! Just a nice big, round hole where they may have used a tool to carve out a section. They take a little from a different berry every night. The berries are organic and very sweet. Some rhubarb is left, so why not mini strawberry rhubarb pies? Just a thought. Better watch my raspberries! Gnomes are known to ferment them to make a potent alcoholic drink. Good thing they don’t drive! 

All is well.

    Val, I would keep a close eye on the raspberries. The “Gnome Brew” is quite potent. While there are no “Gnomemobiles”, I have heard that on occasions they will become disorientated and fall from their homes after imbibing. I believe a soft layer of pine needles placed at the base of the tree will cushion their fall, should this occur.
