The ants and the woodlice got mine! (I have a few plants in my rather overgrown bank ~ pesky bugs snaffle them every year)

Good to know that you or rather your daughter got yours.
If in doubt ~ use a hammer!

Better keep watch over them! Maybe you can take turns with your daughter - 12 hour shifts anybody? I am lucky, in a way, I'm looking after two gardens while their owners are on holiday, and I've been told to pick whatever is ready. So although the birds/slugs and other nasties get their share, there's enough left for me, too. Not just strawberries, either...

My jack russell starts dancing around and getting very exciting when anyone is eating a banana, from being a wee pup he always had the end of our banana as a treat

Just one thing to remember (2steps) grapes are very poisonous for dogs. It causes kidney failure I believe.
