Protecting my breakfast!

Our strawberries are ripening daily and are deliciously sweet. I use them for snacks, on flapjacks, waffles and pancakes but also for quick fruit salads on hot mornings.

The birds also think they are yummy for snacks so we have had to come up with a way to protect the berries so that they are not ruined with one peck before totally ripe.

My younger daughter has lots of CD's that she no longer needs and is rigging up these deterrents on all our hanging baskets. So far it's working.

Very cool using the CDs. We have used netting in the past, but that sure has its drawbacks.

What a clever frugal deterrent!

Great idea! My mum using the same idea. Looks hilarious but is quite effective. Enoy your strawberries!
