Something we have no shortage of around here
In fact, we are over-run with them...
and not just the cement variety!
Of course, when you want to get a picture of a rabbit,
there are none to be found.
Any other time... running all over the place.
This summer, for the first time, I have noticed rabbits in my garden.
Sadly, they have been nibbling on my beans...
and not my green beans (whose seeds are a dime-a-dozen).
No, they seem to have developed a taste for the Chinese Red Noodle beans.
I have had to replant them several times,
and have just resorted to using a rabbit repellant.
I sprinkled some around my newly germinated beans.
Let me tell you, if I were rabbit, there'd be no way I would go after these beans now.
This stuff stinks!
And here is what makes it so putrid...
I am guessing that the reason there are rabbits eating beans this year
is due to the fact that these garden boxes are a bit lower than the old ones.
Instead of sitting on top of the ground, they are dug partially into it.
This was done so that they would be level.
The rabbit explosion might also be due to the fact that a few of our rabbit hunters...
have gotten lazy over the past year!
As for the rest of the garden...
it is growing like the weeds that are growing
between the boxes (along with freshly planted grass.)
Eventually I will mow between the boxes.
For now, though, I am allowing the grass to take hold.
This makes the garden a bit unsightly for now.
In the end, I am hoping for a lush green carpet between the boxes.
We have had plentiful rainfall since we've been home from Iceland.
I have not had to water at all.
There's more rain in the forecast as well...
so we should continue to have a banner garden year...
with, or without the beans!
