New to growing potatoes.

Do not cover the foliage.  Just pile up the soil to cover the lower stems and the potatoes to prevent the light getting at them.

Cut strawberry leaves off?

The easiest way is to make a former and wind wire around it to make wire hoops. Then you just stick the two ends in the ground over the plastic.  Do not be too ambitious and buy sheets that are too long.  Several shorter ones are more useful.  And remember to secure them or the wind will take them!

Let this be a warning to anybody tempted to buy any sort of trap.  Please work out beforehand what you are going to do with whatever you catch.  This applies to squirrels, rabbits, rats, magpies and mice; or anything else.

Before you do anything, decide how many plants you realistically need and take out the extras.  Then proceed as above.

Using old bricks to disguise a turf stack?

I would forget the bricks and just move in some pots of plants to put in the front of the pile.  You will be glad you kept the pile when it has all rotted down.
