Progress On The Bunny War!

I may be winning.

  Or their numbers may just be decreasing.

  At least they are not chomping the heck out of my flowers and vegetables any more.

I have covered some off my favorite flowers with decorative items that are protective as well.

I am not hating the way it looks.

I may stalk thrift stores for more birdcages and wire art to put over plants.

Wouldn’t a galvanized milk crate look great at the base of this windmill, protecting the clematis planted there?

Since they left my lilies alone I have been having fun perusing garden catalogues for different color Daylilies and Asiatic lilies

So pretty!

This beautiful daylily was originally planted in the garden of a house I used to live in. I moved it here! I can’t wait to plant a few more varieties!

We put 3/4 inch fencing around the vegetable garden.  Easy-peasey – wish I’d thought of it first!

I told hubby the bunnies could get through that large wire fencing we used first.

 Hate to say I told you so but……..

I TOLD YOU SO!

The new netting is staked to the ground and if they still get in I am considering electric fencing!

The peppers are totally gone and so are most of the pole beans I originally planted.

One broccoli plant survived.

Also one cabbage plant is trying to come back.

Strangely, they left the tomatoes, zucchini and cucumbers totally alone.

I planted bush bean seeds everywhere the bunnies left me an empty space. They are coming up now.

Cucumber and zucchini vines.

Did I mention the straw I used for mulch sprouted grass?

  Ironic isn’t it?

I put the mulch down to DETER weeds.

We are going on vaca for almost 2 weeks so I know there will be a nice mess of weeds when I get back.

But there also will be some red, ripe, juicy TOMATOES!

Which is exactly what this is all about!

    Now that YOU mentioned it, i’ve only ever had INSECTS eat my tomatoes which begs a question; if wild animals know what’s best to eat and none are eating tomatoes, could it be tomatoes are NOT ALL THEY ARE CRACKED UP TO BE?

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
