Free Organic Strawberry Guard for the Garden

Mr Frog  - guard of the strawberries
If you look closely you will spot a frog amongst the straw surrounding the strawberry plants. For the second year running a frog has found a home amongst the strawberry patch in the garden. Hopefully he will be eating those pesky slugs that like to nibble the ripe strawberries, best of all this slug deterrent did not cost me a penny and it is organic too! Both my neighbours have water features in their gardens, so I expect Mr Frog has come from nearby. I am not bothered by Mr Frog, except for when he jumps and lands on my foot.

I spotted Mr Frog as I picked the first punnet of strawberries from the garden. Lucky I had my mobile phone in my pocket, so managed a photograph before he disappeared under cover. Checking the fruit will become a daily job as they are ripening quickly in the sunshine. Some I will have on my breakfast cereal or for dessert with ice cream, whilst others will not make it to the punnet but be eaten as soon as they are picked.

  1. It's amazing what you can find in your garden if you just look hard enough :)

  2. Aww that's so cute and your strawberries look delicious. I'm just waiting for the raspberries and gooseberries to ripen in mine.

  3. This is so cute! We keep getting slugs in our garden, we need a frog army to come and get rid of them! Those strawberries look delicious though :)
