See my little pea? I went out super early in the mud and the cold to plant him and his kin so that they would have lots of time to grow big and strong before the heat arrived.
What arrived instead? The bunny brothers!!!
Seriously, what kind of an idiot would lovingly portray vermin such as this?!? Oh, wait…
Thanks to those two idiot rabbits, my plants never got any larger than in the picture. If they dared grow over 1″ high, they were chomped off.
I tried inviting a snake into the garden, but it turned its head away and lithped thomething about being thcared of bunnies. I guess this one wasn’t a self-motivated hard worker like that Garden of Eden snake.
Although I have a fence, it didn’t keep the bunny brothers out. They tunneled in under the tomato plants. Their tunnel was big enough that it eventually caused the tomato plants to fall over.
(Hey snake, why don’t you crawl down that hole? Snake: “No thankth. I think I will justh keep eating thith dead toad.”)
I tried using spray made of rotten eggs and garlic and a host of foul things. The label said that it was supposed to repel all different sorts of animals.
I guess in the manufacturer’s world, “repel” means “come hither”. Not only did the bunnies like it but so did my dogs.
Come on Ma, just let me off this leash, and your bunny problem will be history!
Why doesn’t the governor force the bunnies wear masks? It would make it a lot harder for them to eat my vegetables.
If you would like to send pictures of vermin (bunnies) to friends and family, then come visit my store at L Bowman Studios. I have several styles of note cards to fit your correspondence needs.
(Oh, and if you haven’t been to the Post Office lately, they have some interesting holographic dinosaur stamps for sale!)
LIVE AND LET LIVE !!
THE GOPHERS HERE CHEW AND KIL OFF MOST PLANTS
MY FRIEND PGGY MAKES A SPRAY OF A HIOT SAUCE TO STOP THE DEER FROM BUD CHEWING !!!
I don’t mind the bunnies living as long as they don’t eat all of my food. There is plenty of clover for them to eat!
If we had a snake in the garden we would have to move. We see some garden stores that sell these big metal owls. They are supposed to scare off critters.
I tried to get one of those owls in the spring, but the stores around here were sold out. With my luck, the bunnies would have fallen in love with it.
I once planted carrots. The bunnies ate them to the ground. Le Sigh. They now sit in my front yard and eat the grass and clover and Maverick barks fiercely but they know he can’t get through the door so they taunt him. I’m not sure I like bunnies
I think the only people who like bunnies don’t have any around.
I know a guy to talk to about vegetable cages. He says they work great. Even the thnakes can’t get in.
I would take him up on that if it weren’t the hand pollination part.
Oh, my, so sorry to hear about your bunny problem! 😦
But, you did make me laugh! 😀
One place we lived we had a bunny problem, but once we put a fence around the garden, it helped.
We get some little bunnies in our front yard now and we have a few plants they like to nibble on. But they are such little bunnies they can only “trim” the bottom branches, so that is okay with me.
When Coop was young, he always wanted to chase the bunnies, but we never let him off his leash to do so. Now, in his well-seasoned age, he doesn’t even seem to care about them.
PS…Love your title!
I took Toby out for a 2 a.m. pee, and he nearly pulled me flat on my face because he saw the bunny out there first. I could do with fewer of those pests this year.
Sorry you didn’t get to catch any bunnies Coop. Humans don’t like when we catch them, but doggies really enjoy Hasenpfeffer (right Bugs?).
Hey! Maybe Toby is practicing for the Iditarod Race and bunnies are helpful. 😉
Toby says, “Yeah…that’s the ticket!”
