The vetch smothers the weeds in the strawberry patch but the strawberry can survive this. The weed free strawberries flourish for a while after the vetch is cut. the vetch is feed for ruminants. In colder climates the berries may produce first and the vetch would be cut after. In my case I need to expariment more with the cutting date. strawberry season seems to start in nov. or dec. for me so I think I'll leave the vetch over it until august most annual weed seeds will have sprouted and died by then. I will try cutting a patch in september and one in july as well.
I child proofed my house but they still get in. Distract them with this tiny ad:
