So juicy and sweet. First time I added Epson salt into the soil when I planted these, that helps the berries to be nice and sweet😘plus the hot sun we've been having has helped ripen them. Thank you 🤗 ladies @Mimi58 @gjones

I've used epsom salts to help roses perk up but I haven't used it for strawberries - will give it a try next spring on my strawberry patch.

@rudester1 Here's a photo of all 4 of my #strawberry #growbags sitting on our deck, along with my rubber snakes🤗very pleased with how they are giving us so many 🍓 berries, time to pick a few more.

I am very curious about the rubber snakes! I have a huge Squirrel problem with my tomatoes. Do you think the rubber snakes could help?

They work for my strawberries😊up on my deck. I also have 3 rubber snakes in my tomato garden and I haven't seen any squirrels but, I have seen groundhogs, they were pushing in on the fence and got into the garden, we had to reinforce the fence👍hoping that stops them, time will tell. It helps to also move the snakes around every few days, so I would give it a try. I found them in the dollar store in the toy section. Good luck, let me know if it helps😊 @cheriej
