My 7yo dd and I have a bucket garden. We live in apartments so we don't have our own yard, rather a shared courtyard so our garden is in buckets by the door. It may not be pretty but it's ours :-)
We're growing strawberries, potatos, onions, bell peppers and spinach. The strawberries are Audi's babies! lol She's always checking on them, watering them,caring for them, one in particular was almost ripe. This morning she went to look at them before school and it was gone. Baby girl was crushed. Someone picked her strawberry. The one she had been checking everyday for weeks.
I don't know what to do. It could have been anyone. We have 7 neighbors and foot trafic goes in and out. Now I'm worried that everytime the fruit is ready some idiot will pick it. I was thinking of growing them inside but the cat and dogs will either eat them or dig them up.
Does anyone have any ideas?
