Devon, United Kingdom
I have a few strawberries growing at the end of a deep bed that was mostly covered over (plastic) until yesterday. I uncovered it to plant my leeks out and found that some creature had been picking all the ripe strawberries and had piled them up a couple of foot away from the strawberries - under the cover. They had not been eaten and were rotting in their - quite big - heap. What could have done this? Also under the cover was a mammoth ant nest (it should move now i've watered it with (cold!) peppermint tea) but would ants do it????
