Default Strawberry growers & black plastic

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

Weeds? Nah, never heard of 'em.

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

the berries mustn't touch the ground - they're called strawberries because
you would traditionally put down straw around them to keep the berries off
the ground! (or on modern farms, plastic, but plasticberries doesn't sound
very nice ;-)

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?)

I dunno but one thing I do know is that you're not supposed to call 'em
Bl**kberries anymore; it's African-Americanberries.

Hmm, maybe they have Elderberries instead (?)

I know a girl who does but she's a Lezzoberry.

All good questions which only adds to my confusion coz I was already
worrying that if a Gooseberry is male, is it a Ganderberry? Are
Mull-berries what young boys pack into their bongs? Do people from
Albury even eat fruit?

This whole berry thing is such a dilemma!

I spray them for that reason with American African spray. But if they
ever find out I will be charged with genocide.(murdering the English
language?)
