Stock Images of Strawberries (Vegetable Gardens)

Pictures include some patches of strawberry plants, which are growing in rows against walls in kitchen gardens and as part of a vegetable plot. Close-ups show the green and red strawberries fattening up and ripening in the sunshine, while other photos illustrate the need to protect this summer fruit from hungry birds by covering the plants with garden netting, stretched over a simple wooden frame. To keep the fruit clean from dirt and discourage slugs, some of the strawberry plants have been mulched with hay, or planted within a black weed blanket membrane, which also has the advantage of reducing weeds and retaining moisture.
