I've often wondered when going past strawberry growers why they are
planted in rows & rows of black plastic. Why do they do this?


Havent you heard of weeds and keeping the ground warm, and easier,
cleaner picking and maintaince?

Weeds? Nah, never heard of 'em.

But yeah, that makes sense and common sense in this instance escaped
me. Anyway, okay thank you, Jonno.


Me neither.
Anyway how did the strawberries survive before human intervention, and
what were they called then?
And before they invented ther rasp, what were raspeberries called, and
before logans hero's what were loganberries called ( er hoganberries?)
