That's a really good idea. Since I stopped watering I've noticed more weeds, yes. I've also noticed that the extra weeds seem to interfere with daily growth. It's never been a big deal to me. I have way too much food as it is and the whole gardening thing, harvesting, raking, watering, inspecting, and selling, is getting on my nerves.So I rake and harvest as needed.

In the rest--I just rake. My only purpose is to see if this makes any difference in the yield of berry bunches when I harvest. You get from 1 to 5 bunches of strawberries. So I can't wait til my next harvest to compare yields! (I HOPE there is no difference so I have no reason to start watering!) Any body else ever try this?
