I've read that if you feed them cornmeal they take can't digest it and it eventually kills them all off.

yes, possibly birds. I guess I just thought the bite marks would look different on a bird eaten strawberry but I really have no clue! this is my first year with a garden other than a few things I've grown over the years in containers. I guess I need to put up some netting and see if that helps.
I've gotten about 10 off the plants already but went out to pick more this morning and somethign has nibbled on all of the ripe ones I have no ideas. its nibbled on them sort of like an apple, so I'm thinking mice? or worse...rats? I dont even know what we have here, we are new to the area. I looked for little paw prints and droppings but found neither. help! what can I do?
Maiasaura I can so relate.

I know I really don't know...
dumb question but what kind of mulch is best to use on gardens? I need to mulch to keep the moisture in.

I'm not always successful, but I can see progress. I've been obese, morbidly so, for more than 15 years. I play around at losing and let my cravings...
I've been struggling for the month of May so far. ugh trying to get back on plan but so much emotional garbage going on right now that I'm really struggling as I am an emotional eater. Struggling to deal with it in other ways, journaling, talking with friends and loved ones, etc. Somehow it just doesn't seem to be helping so much. I'm letting myself make excuses and also find myself eating without even knowing I was doing it, not really anyway. I haven't been keeping...
