I wait until they start to ripen then net.
Unfortunately, have had to give up the alloment recently. Poorly mother and mother in law mean that we are unable to dedicate the time any more. Havent been up there to work on it since February when MIL went into hospital.
So we are going to give it a tidy, dismantle the raised beds and leave it in a suitable state. Hubby started to strim very overgrown paths yesterday and managed to pick a sizeable first crop of early strawbs. Sad, but cant really see a way around it or a foreseeable end to current situation.
