Cinderella story...outta nowhere

One of the cool things we discovered about this house (besides that whole secret Harry Potter room) is that the front yard has a huge patch of strawberries planted there.
We didn't notice it right away though, because the berries are very small.

Why are they so small?
Because we also have these:

Gophers nibble on the berries and eat them up before they can really grow.
In just the one month we've been here, we've seen a few more gopher holes pop up in the front yard.
I don't mind that they ear the strawberries, but they're making a mess of the yard, so they have to go.
