Strawberry thief !

My strawberries are flowering and producing a fabulous late crop but strangely very few ripe ones. The slugs have had a nibble at some and I don’t mind a little sharing as long as they aren’t too greedy! Nearby is a huge Butternut Squash Plant sheltering a large patch of garden soil. While checking the new squash babies being formed I came across a cache of twenty lovely strawberries.. they were still white and neatly placed close together. We don’t have squirrels here so I can only think that it is mice. I did see on your discussions that someone else has had the same problem. Little rascals !
The ripe ones are easier for them to get their sluggy mouths round
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
